“Crimea and Donbass are now connected by a land corridor through the territory of Ukraine. A motor road from Crimea to Mariupol has been taken under control”, –  Muradov said.

He noted that while battles with Ukrainian nationalists are ongoing, the highway could be a help in supplying humanitarian goods to the population of the liberated areas of the DPR.

“This road will become an important highway for Crimea, connecting the peninsula with Mariupol – the metallurgical centre of the Azov region – and the industrial region of Donbas”, – the permanent representative stressed.

In his opinion, one should already think about cooperation in transportation of cargoes through the seaports of Crimea and the key ports of the Azov Sea – Mariupol and Berdyansk, as this is a guarantee of future development of the whole region.
