The Investigative Committee of Russia is investigating the negligence of Sevastopol road agency Sevavtodor over the collapse on the Sevastopol-Simferopol highway in the Mekenzievy mountains in the occupied Crimea, the Center for Journalistic Investigations reported, citing the Crimea resident Aleksandr Talipov.
Previously a public figure Talipov, loyal to the occupation of the Crimea, appealed to Investigative Committee with a request to investigate the actions of the self-proclaimed authorities of the peninsula for negligence in repairing of a section of the route Sevastopol-Simferopol, which collapsed as a result of a landslide.
It is indicated that the perpetrators face a fine of up to 120 thousand rubles, correctional labor or arrest up to three months.
Earlier, QHA reported by that the traffic was limited on the section of the route Simferopol - Bakhchisarai - Sevastopol in the evening of March 9 in connection with the urgent repairs due to the landslide that occurred earlier.
April 4, the "government" of the occupied Sevastopol held a closed meeting via the videoconference to discuss the landslide issue on the Sevastopol-Simferopol highway. According to the participants, the Federal Road Agency of the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation Rosavtodor announced the decision to repair the Sevastopol road collapse under special control due to the vague position of local "authorities" regarding the terms and scope of work.
Currently, no works are carried out in the landslide area, the asphalt was completely removed and geological surveys are being conducted. According to a public figure who attended the meeting, at this rate, Crimea can face the transport collapse in the holiday season.
