  1. "Controverse". A feat every ruler has wished to accomplish for two centuries being finally accomplished is now called "controversial". Interesting to know: it seems that politics these days matter more than morals.

    By the way, where did those report of water and energy shortage come from? I've not seen them anywhere else.

  2. Very nice when Russian bots, trying to act like "foreigners" cheer up for Russia. Russia is a corrupt state with an official 20% of the population living below the poverty line, what is 10 528 rubles or about $150 a month! And all of that in the country with the richest natural resources!!! Look for example at the UAE, where tha average salary is not $150 a month, but the $4000!
    Here you go do your own month and go fu русские выблядки

  3. The Ukraine and Kievan Rus never existed. There was Kievan Principality like Novgorod Principality, Rostov Principality and many more and they were just parts of the Rus.
    The Kievan Principality has been destroyed by nomads most of all and those nomads pechenegs, nogayets, polovets stayed in Kiev since 1240. The ukranians are their descendants mixed with slavic people within 800 years since then. That is why ukrainian national outfit, hairstyle (single strand of hair = hohol), saggy long moustache are totally different from slavic national ones and look like national apparel of turks, kazakh, kalmyk , and pure ukrainians (shchiry hohols) are swazy and black haired ones. The Ukrainian national flag is a version of Buryat flag. The Ukrainian national hero by the name Mamai is the namesake of mongol Mamai – Han. This could be the same man. All these features came from so called Ukraine historic past. The origin of the name Ukraine is contraversial and could mean a border land, or a stolen land, or ugro (ugric) land. In the classic literature of the past the Ukraine is known as Little Russia = Malorossiia that infuriates the ukrainian nationalists.

  4. I am sure Crimean's would not wish to trade places with Ukrainians given Kievs support of far right extremists, and the attacks on its own Citizens in East Ukraine.

    Thank heavens Putin came to the rescue, and prevented Kiev from extending their genocide to Crimea.

  5. Controversial? The longest bridge in Europe and Russia, built in record time and under budget is not controversial. It is a big F#%K You to all the haters and liars the Russians are dealing with.

  6. BBC why do you show russian solders in Crimea in 2014? Are you idiots? This video supposed to be about the bridge. Hey brits……do you watch this shit (BBC)? They lost any credability!

  7. A BEAUTIFUL BRIDGE !!! CRIMEA IS NOW BACK WITH RUSSIA. CRIMEA HAS FOR CENTURIES BEEN PART OF RUSSIA. THE CRIMEAN PEOPLE VOTED IN NON-FORCED REFERENDUM TO RETURN TO RUSSIA. IN THE RUSSIAN ELECTION RECENTLY, THE CRIMEAN PEOPLE VOTED 92% FOR PUTIN , REAFFIRMING THE VALIDITY OF THE ORIGINAL REFERENDUM. THE PUPPET UKRAINE STATE OF POROSHENKO HAS CHAOS, POVERTY, CORRUPTION (STUPID pOROSHENKO IS HIMSELF A BILLIONAIRE, ALON G WIT HIS FELLOW CORRUPT OLIGARCHS WHILE CRIMEA UNDER rUSSIA'S JURISDICTION IS FLOURISHING AND THE PEOPLE ARE HAPPY AND PROSPERING.

  8. Americans and Western Europeans are rats. Mean, vile, sneaky cowards. Disgusting.
    Be ready meet the end of dollar and the end of your world
    .
    .

  9. Poor Russian trolls. Why do you even comment on a BBC News video? Go watch your brainwashing RT. Go vote for your corrupt Putin again. Do you ever wonder why the people are so poor in Russia when Russia is 3rd in the number of billionaires? Maybe we should call them billionaire oligarchs.

  10. BBC: You still did not learn what the rest of the world thinks. Your anti Russia propaganda is outdated and nobody listened To Your propaganda of deep hatred.
    By the way, Crimea has been part of Russia and It is not part of Ukraine at all. 1954 the USSR secretary just annexed Crime with Ukraine with no legal procedure. I am sure You know that.
    Then the Crimea people decided willingly with a proper referendum as part of Russia. That is it.

  11. I feel sooooo happy for the Crimeans who are anyway nearly all Russians!! And now they are finally connected with their beloved Mother Russia !!! Go Russia! No one will stop you ever again! Love and respect from Germany!

  12. You forgot to add that the Russians built more in Crimea in 4 years than Ukraine in 60 years or for as long they had it stolen from Russia. By the way electricity and water shortages were enduced d by Ukraine not Russia you tucking liars. Ask any Crimean what they think of Ukraine and its criminal government that overthrew a dem. Elected president you will find the truth.

  13. Britshit media says contravesia bridge .r you seriuos that is their country why would be contraversial..how much money you get for this fake news from washington. Trump is not only US prisedent but UK president too your brishit forign policy is being make by US

  14. Crimea was always an Autonomous republic since 1991, even when it was part of Ukraine.. Every time I drove there from Ukraine, I would have to show my passport, go thru security, as if I was entering a different country… So what's the difference? Everyone I know who lives there speaks Russian and identifies as Russian.. leave them the fuck alone

  15. FIRSTLY CRIMEA WAS NOT ANNEXED THE PEOPLE VOTED IN A REFORENDUM AND THE TERRITORY RETURNED TO THE MOTHERLAND OF RUSSIA CRIMEA WAS ALWAYS RUSSIAN !!!! THE BBC DOESNT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT THERE IS NOTHING CONTRAVERTIAL ABOUT THIS BRIDGE RUSSIA DOESNT NEED PERMISSION FROM ANYONE TO BUILD INFRASTRUCTURE ON IT;S TERRITORY !!!!

  16. Dear BBC, the comments here suggest your efforts to put a negative spin on this amazing feat of civil engineering have failed. Maybe you should take note if you want to keep the licence fee.

  17. Where is your sanctions British paranoics. Russia is so poor country , obsolete, they are so stupid and lot of poverty. Russian people are hungry. And you british are all very rich. No poverty, no homeles, no food bank. Look at Russia with your british hate and jelousy

  18. Controversial? To whom? ! Thank goodness Mother Russia cares about the people of Crimea, unlike the EU, who are sanctioning them for expressing their desire to not be part of a basket case like the Ukraine

  19. Neither the United States nor Europe should provide weapons to the fascist government of Petro Poroshenko. He is one of the people responsible for the slaughter of 10,000 people in the Donbass Region, and he will continue to equip his murderous army to have them kill many more innocent people. The people of the free world must support the people of the Donbass breakaway republics. Poroshenko was prepared to hand over Crimea to NATO.

  20. Crimea has been part of Russia long before the USA ever existed. And we all know why this happened.
    The USA & EU sponsored a coup in Ukraine that ousted a democratically elected president Viktor Yanukovych. The idea was to bring Ukraine into the western sphere of influence by installing the pro-EU Poroshenko. Soon after that, Ukraine would join NATO and NATO would finally have a foothold in the black sea, via the Sevastopol naval base in Crimea. Fail!
