Kerch bridge will definitely need the invaders, when they to flee Crimea, says the Ukrainian President.
The construction of the Kerch bridge illegally, and Russia’s attempts to legitimize the temporary occupation of the Crimean Peninsula – in vain. This was written by the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko on his page in Facebook on Tuesday, may 15.
“The illegal construction of the Kerch bridge is another evidence of the contempt for international law by the Kremlin. Particularly cynical is the fact that its discovery comes on the eve of the anniversary of the deportation of the Crimean Tatar people by the Stalinist regime,” – wrote Poroshenko.
He stressed that despite the futile attempts of Moscow to legitimize temporary occupation of Crimea, a coherent solution to a number of international jurisdictions confirm – “the burden of the perfect international crime for Russia will only grow”.
“Ukraine will continue to consistently defend their positions. Let me remind you, on my behalf to the Arbitration Tribunal of the UN Convention on the law of the sea was filed on protecting the sovereign interests of Ukraine, in particular, in connection with the illegal construction of the bridge Kerch”, – said Poroshenko.
However, he expressed regret that the Russian authorities are trying to involve in their infrastructural venture of the European business representatives, in an effort to escape from international legal responsibility.
“Sure, the aggressor will not succeed, he will be liable in full. And the bridge will definitely need invaders when they will urgently leave our Crimea” – summed Poroshenko.
Recall, may 15, Russia was officially opened by the Crimean Kerch Strait bridge. The ceremony was attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Car traffic on the bridge will start on may 16 at 5.30 am.
Earlier media reported that one of the first who will pass through the Crimean bridge, will be the Night wolves bikers, close to the Kremlin.
