Russia: International media in Crimea for tour of region's infrastructure projects

Russian Federation, Kerch
July 6, 2016 at 19:09 GMT +00:00 · Published

Journalists from some of the leading Asian, American and European media outlets arrived in Kerch, Crimea for a tour of the peninsula, Wednesday.

The first stop was to inspect the progress of the Kerch Strait Bridge construction. International correspondent for America's National Public Radio (NPR), Corey Flintoff, said he was impressed by the bridge, referring to it as "an amazing piece of engineering" that demands "so much time and so much energy."

Among the visiting media companies were The Daily Telegraph, Deutsche Welle, NPR, and Korean Broadcasting System (KBS).

Besides the Kerch Strait Bridge, the media are expected to meet the Crimean leader Sergei Aksenov and Governor of Sevastopol Sergei Menyailo. They are also scheduled to attend the International Children's Centre called "Artek," which is known as being one of the largest children's camps in Russia.

The Kerch Strait Bridge is to accommodate both road and rail routes, linking the Crimean Peninsula and Krasnodar region. It is expected to be fully operational by 2019.
