Putin’s Railroad to Crimea Almost Operational

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s reconstruction of a 450-mile railroad stretching across Ukraine into Crimea is almost complete, according to Russian media reports. The railroad will serve as an additional route to the Kerch Strait Bridge, or Crimean Bridge, Russia’s quickest supply route into Crimea.

Putin announced at a rally on Monday:

I have just been informed that the railway from [Russian city] Rostov-on-Don to Donetsk, Mariupol and Berdyansk has been rebuilt. We will continue this work, and soon trains will ride all the way to Crimea, and this will be another alternative route, in addition to the Crimean Bridge.

Yevgeny Balitsky, the Russia-appointed governor of occupied parts of Zaporizhzhia, said work on the railroad is scheduled to be completed by the end of the summer.

Significance: The fact that the Russians are building a supply line through Ukraine indicates that they don’t expect to move out anytime soon. We don’t know exactly how the war in Ukraine will conclude, but we expect Russia will continue to dominate the region.
