Western experts told Business Insider that the bridge from the Taman Peninsula to the Crimea is doomed to collapse since both the construction place and methods chosen aren’t correct, reported the USN.

In order to link the peninsula with the mainland Russia, the country is building the Crimean bridge, the cost of which varies between $ 3,2-4,3 billion. However, the setbacks can be seen in the construction process. Adverse weather conditions, including storms, delayed the project, experts say.

Experts argue that the construction site is earthquake-prone s and ubject to the action of mud volcanoes.

Earlier, the Financial Times voiced similar doubts adding that "neither Hitler nor the Red Army" is not able to complete the construction of such a facility in this location.
