"The Crimean Bridge" - A Rather Bland Name For a Geo-Political Game-Changer
The bridge which is being constructed over the Strait of Kerch has been finally given the official name. From now on it is the Crimean Bridge. This name won in the online vote, launched on the initiative of Vladimir Putin a year ago by the majority of votes.
For this purpose, the Russian Ministry of Transport created a special website. The results were announced on Saturday. The name “the Crimean Bridge” is far ahead of the others. The Kerchensky Bridge ranks second. The Bridge of Reunion ranks third.
Other possible names were: The Big Russian Bridge, The Road Home, The Polite Bridge, Our Bridge, and etc.
In any case, the bridge to the Crimea was given its name. And this name will appear on topographic maps.
However, the new Crimean bridge has its namesake in Moscow. But it's okay. How many Streets of Peace are there in our cities? And what's bad? The more bridges, the better – especially Crimean bridges.
Meanwhile, the construction continues. The opening will take place soon.
