Re: Ukraine riots.

Put those EU flags away for at least 20 years.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has called construction of a bridge between Russia and occupied Crimea a “historic mission.”

He should pay better attention to history. This mission is doomed to failure, and not only because of sanctions. Experts warn that even if the bridge now under construction can be finished, its chances of standing for any length of time are small…

But Georgy Rosnovsky, the creator of two Ukrainian Kerch Strait bridge designs, cannot understand why the current plan through the Tuzla Spit was chosen. As he told Focus.ua, the website of Ukrainian news magazine Focus, it is the most complicated and expensive option.

Assuming generous financing, the bridge can be built, but he doubts that it will last very long, given the area’s poor geological conditions. These include deep-lying mud volcanoes and a sludgy bottom that is unsuitable for bridge foundations.

Most disturbing, it is an area of high seismic activity. The piles would need to be much deeper than they are in the current design, and Rosnovsky fears that the construction is likely to be weak. The bridge spans also need to be over 200 meters to ensure that they aren’t damaged when the water freezes; this is currently not in the plan.

Rosnovsky also takes issue with the bridge’s proposed height. The Russian project is 35 meters high, compared with the minimum 50 meters listed in the recommendations for the Ukrainian projects. This will hamper the movement of boats in the area, especially in storm conditions. A Turkish trawler has already rammed into the bridge’s temporary bearings…


Putin?s Bridge to Crimea Is Doomed to Collapse

Russians aren’t the greatest bridge builders…

Re: Ukraine riots.

Some said that it should never have been built and that if it was it was likely to collapse.

Interesting that no reputable underwriters will cover – why would that be I wonder?

It might be something to do with sanctions but someone will cover it, its business.

Nothing to do with sanctions - not even Russian underwriters will accept liability.

One unknown Crimean company has given cover for $1Bn, my guess is that they'll take the first premium and scoot - let's hope they don't scoot to the UK or there could be another dodgy poisoning

Just because it’s a dodgy insurer doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s Russian - but I do follow your reasoning

Putin’s Kerch Bridge to Crimea: No Money, Dodgy Insurance & No Accountability

“…On June 9, Vedomosti reported that the Kerch bridge “is insured by an unknown Crimean company”…”

Putin?s Kerch Bridge to Crimea: No Money, Dodgy Insurance & No Accountability - Human Rights in Ukraine

Digging a little deeper it’s probably the Crimean First Insurance Company (KPSK) but they are certainly unknown, I’ve searched both the Ukraine & Russian Business Directories but can find no mention. Maybe Sextronic can help.

And the only reference I can find is this one...

KPSK - YouTube

But Putin’s problem, not ours.
