Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman condemned the project, saying it has damaged the environment and that larger ships will not be able to pass through its ports on the Azov Sea. He was hit with sanctions by the USA for his proximity to Putin and by the European Union for being among those accused of undermining Ukraine's territorial integrity. The first to cross the new bridge on specialized equipment will be its builders: specialists from different regions of the country, thanks to which the bridge was handed over six months ahead of schedule.

After Russia's annexation of Crimea in March 2014, the peninsula found itself between a rock and a hard place.

He stressed that despite the futile attempts of Moscow to legitimize temporary occupation of Crimea, a coherent solution to a number of global jurisdictions confirm - "the burden of the flawless worldwide crime for Russian Federation will only grow". Russian President Vladimir Putin is licensed to drive heavy trucks, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told TASS, when asked if the president had the right to take a seat at the wheel of a Kamaz truck for a ride along the Crimean Bridge at the dedication ceremony on Tuesday. But many in Russia saw the move as restoring Moscow's rule over a historically Russian region.


Built at a cost of 223 billion roubles ($3.60 billion), the bridge will be the longest dual-purpose span in Europe.

European Union and USA sanctions have targeted those involved in the realization of the bridge, particularly businessman Arkady Rotenberg, a close ally of Putin whose company Stroygazmontazh won the construction contract. The railway section of the bridge is scheduled to open in late 2019.

"This is an extremely important day from this point of view and in a practical sense and in symbolic terms". The bridge was finished months ahead of the deadline, which had been set for the end of the year.
