The Crimean Bridge
is a crystallised artefact of Putin’s regime, evidence for further forensic investigation on Russian state violence. Being constructed to become a symbol of Russian occupation of Crimea, it is one of the most politically charged contemporary mega-projects in line with Us-Mexico border. The Crimean combines all aspects of Russian politics one could imagine - including, but not limited to, military intervention in Ukraine, ecological damage, immense propaganda campaign, corruption. Despite this fact, it hasn’t been dissected yet.
This web-platform will gradually lead you through the crimes the Crimean Bridge enabled, showing alternative overview of the project, taking it apart to reveal its decaying bedding. Intro provides you with a short report on the project. This intro explains the way investigation was structured and the goal it tries to achieve. A diagram outlines the main principle the Crimean Bridge project is guided by. A model maps its main (dis)functions.
