MOSCOW, March 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine remains Russia’s very important partner, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev wrote on the Twitter micro blog on Monday.
“There are obligations, which were signed earlier and which should be carried out,” the Russian premier said.
“In compliance with the agreements, which were signed with Ukraine a year ago, a bridge across the Kerch Straits has begun building,” he said.
Earlier, Medvedev said he had signed a resolution to give the functions over the Kerch Straits project to a joint-stock company due to be created by Russian Highways (Avtodor).
“Russia and Ukraine are interested in stable and cheap service between the Taman Peninsula and Crimea to maintain trade relations and carry out investment projects,” the Russian prime minister said.
