The article notes that road transport will go over the bridge this year, and the train will start in 2019. Also on the Peninsula is scheduled to open two plants and one motorway. Feldman emphasizes that investments in Crimean infrastructure by 2020 will total about 1 trillion rubles. “Not a single Ukrainian leader not been paid much attention to Crimea as now pays Vladimir Putin”, — he explained.
Commenting on the accusations of human rights organizations in that the representatives of the Crimean Tatar community have been subjected to persecution, Aksenov said that on the Peninsula there is not a single political prisoner. “Crimea ever returned to Russia. Anyone who speaks for the resistance, stands for the bloodshed. Of course, we can’t agree to this and will react,” he concluded.
