WATCH Opening Ceremony of Crimean Bridge in Russian Federation

Putin inaugurates controversial bridge between Russia Crimea

Kerch bridge will definitely need the invaders, when they to flee Crimea, says the Ukrainian President.

About 10,000 workers participated in the work, a figure that at peak moments of the construction works reached the 15,000, while some 220 national companies contributed to the so-called work of the century, said the president visibly moved.

The Kerch Strait Bridge will open to cars and public transport on Wednesday, May 16. The ceremony will be held with the participation of Vladimir Putin.

"In different historical eras, even under the tsar, people were dreaming of building this bridge", Putin told cheering workers.

In Kiev, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko slammed Putin's actions.

The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko called the elections in occupied Crimea is a gross violation of worldwide law and called for increased sanctions pressure on the Kremlin.

The annexation of the peninsula in 2014 was condemned by Kiev and the West as an illegal land grab but applauded in Russian Federation.

"We plan to open the truck traffic this fall; such date is planned to date", the official said responding to a question whether the bridge becomes open for trucks from October 1. "This constitutes another violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity by Russian Federation", the European Union said.

"The Russian occupying powers, which have temporarily occupied Crimea, are continuing to act outside global law", Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman told AFP in an interview. Many in Russia saw the move as restoring Moscow's rule over a historically Russian region.

Built at a cost of 223 billion roubles ($3.6 billion US), it will be the longest dual-purpose span bridge in Europe.

The railway bridge is not yet finished and has a deadline of the end of 2019.

Putin, who was re-elected for a fourth Kremlin term in March extending his long rule, pledged to build more of "such projects" across Russian Federation.

"This is an extremely important day from this point of view and in a practical sense and in symbolic terms".
