«Huge» and «scale» — such assessments were given by foreign journalists to the construction of the Crimean bridge. The Russian Foreign Ministry organized a trip to the site for representatives of 10 countries: Spain, Italy, Iceland, Germany, Cuba, Bulgaria, Kuwait, Ukraine, Syria, Lebanon. All of them are participants of the first international media forum «Open Crimea: with my own eyes».
The journalists were shown how the construction was going: collecting navigable arches, and installing the closing blocks of the railway section.
Correspondents noted that they had not seen such large-scale operations, not only technological, but also political ones. We also focused on the timing of construction. They also stressed that the bridge under construction creates the impression of an object for centuries.
