Russia Not Asking Anyone’s Permission for Projects on Its Territory: Embassy in US

Russia Not Asking Anyone’s Permission for Projects on Its Territory
The Russian government is not planning to ask for anybody’s permission to build facilities in its own regions, the Russian embassy in US has said, commenting on Washington’s criticism of the Crimea bridge opening ceremony.

"Today Russian President Vladimir Putin has officially dedicated the first section of the Crimean Bridge. As one could predict, Washington is not happy with that. But Crimea is Russia. We shall not ask for anybody’s permission to build transport infrastructure for the sake of the population of Russian regions," the embassy said in a statement, TASS news agency reported.

US Department of State Spokesperson Heather Nauert told reporters on Tuesday that the construction allegedly impedes navigation and "limits the ability to bring in goods via ship." In a separate written statement, she said that Washington "condemns Russia’s construction and partial opening" of the bridge, which "was done without the permission of the government of Ukraine."
