Ac­ci­dent hits il­le­gal Kerch bridge

Kyiv Post - - National -

A sec­tion of the Kerch rail­way bridge plunged into the water as it was be­ing put in place on Oct. 4, halt­ing work on the il­le­gal link be­tween Rus­sia and Ukraine’s Rus­sian-oc­cu­pied Crimea. The ac­ci­dent hap­pened over open water be­tween the Tu­zla Split and Tu­zla Is­land, the Krem­lin­con­trolled news web­site Ria Novosti re­ported. The rail­way part of the bridge is sched­uled to open in De­cem­ber 2019. The Rus­sians fin­ished the road part in May, with Krem­lin dic­ta­tor Vladimir Putin open­ing the link by driv­ing a con­struc­tion truck across it. (kerch.fm)
