Russian President Vladimir Putin has called construction of the connection between Russia and occupied Crimea a “historic objective. ” He should spend better focus on history. This objective is condemned to failure, and not soleley as a result of sanctions. Specialists warn that no matter if the connection now under construction could be completed, its odds of standing for just about any period of time are little.
There has for ages been talk of creating a connection throughout the Kerch Strait, in which the Azov and Ebony Seas merge, to connect Russia and Crimea.
