On Tuesday, President Vladimir Putin took part in an official opening of the automobile part of a bridge across the Kerch Strait, driving KamAZ.
The President visited the Control Center, which will monitor the bridge operation day and night, and talked with the builders. Then, Vladimir Putin drove along the Crimean bridge, sitting behind the wheel of KamAZ, a truck of the Russian brand.
According to the official schedule of the head of state, after that, Vladimir Putin will address the builders at a rally dedicated to the opening of the automobile part of the Crimean bridge.
As Dmitry Peskov, Press Secretary of the President, commented earlier, it was Vladimir Putin who initiated the bridge construction, although many people did not believe in the success at that time.
