Occupation authorities mull demolishing houses to clear way for Kerch Bridge in Crimea
The residents of the occupied city of Kerch are ready to resettle for the sake of the construction of the Kerch Bridge, but only in the "quality and equivalent apartments." In case if they fail to reach agreement with the occupation authorities, the residents intend to complain to Moscow, one of the affected locals said in an interview with the Krym.Realii radio station.
"We hope for the best. We will complain if they hurt us, we will apply to the Secretariat... in Moscow," she said.
The residents in the area where the authorities are planning to demolish houses for the construction of the Kerch Bridge are worried that they will not be provided with the alternative conditions. The citizens say about "negative communication experience with the local authorities."
