The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko ordered to submit Russia to the court for causing “environmental damage” in the construction of a bridge to Crimea. This was reported by press Secretary of the President Svyatoslav Tsegolko wrote on his Twitter page.

Blocking the Strait of Kerch during the construction of the bridge in the Crimea, in fact, Russia has condemned Ukraine for insulation, said earlier the Deputy Minister on the issues of the temporarily occupied territories and internally displaced persons of Ukraine Georgy Tuka.

Kiev’s actions are dictated by fear
Political scientist, Deputy Chairman of the Public chamber of the Republic of Crimea Alexander Formanchuk considers that Ukraine is annoying is that Russia has demonstrated the ability to implement such a project.
