In August, the Ministry of Ukraine on Affairs of refugees has expressed concern that the construction of the bridge Crimea will affect the competitiveness of the port of Mariupol, located on the coast of the Azov sea. “New requirements to the size of the vessels, according to the Mariupol port, they will not respond at least 144 ships that came into port during the past year,” the Ministry said.

According to Ukrainian officials, “restrictions will lead to the fact that in Mariupol sea port will be able to enter only vessels with a relatively smaller total capacity”. On the introduction of restrictions on dimensions for ships passing through the sea area under the arches of a bridge span object, it was reported in June in a letter to the captain of the port of Kerch.

Crimean bridge, which is erected by Russian builders, will connect the coast of Crimea and Krasnodar territory. The total length of construction will be 19 kilometers, it will be the longest in Russia by a bridge. Road traffic is scheduled to open in 2018, while the train is in 2019. In June it was reported that the construction works made more than 50 percent.
