 Kerch bridge and Tavrida highway: Russian occupants demolish houses and evict people. VIDEO

Russian authorities are demolishing property of residents of the occupied Crimea to construct the Kerch bridge and federal highway Tavrida that leads to it.

Censor.NET reports citing Radio Svoboda.

The first to lose their homes over the future Kerch bridge were 80 families who resided along Tsementna Slobidka Street in Kerch. Crimean officials promised them equal housing, but instead offered homes with leaking drainage, mold, and halls in walls. The people haven't received documents for ownership for the new homes and compensation for the lost housing.

The next obstacle for the construction of roads to the future bridge were Kerch dachas of Zaliv garden non-profit association. The other day, some of these summer cottages were demolished. Dacha residents say they were not even allowed time to take away their belongings. They say the "Crimean authorities" do not pay them the promised compensation and underestimate the prices of their plots.



More objects are planned to be demolished in the near future, some of them are steles and monuments.

Tavrida highway was to be opened until the end of 2018, but the launch was rescheduled until 2020.
