Kyiv-based Crimean Prosecutor's Office to ask NASA to probe ecological issues of Kerch bridge construction
The Prosecutor's Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea has prepared a query to NASA asking it to provide conclusions regarding the violation of environmental safety during the construction of the Kerch bridge in Russia.
"At present, such an international query [to NASA] is ready and I think that it will be sent within the next few weeks," Chief of the Office for Supervision over Criminal Proceedings of the Prosecutor's Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea Oleksandr Darakchi said at a press conference in Kyiv on Tuesday.
According to him, to date, the relevant aerial photographs have already been obtained and have already been sent for engineering and environmental examination.
According to Darkachi, this will be a comprehensive examination involving experts from different fields.
"The examination conclusions are likely to be drawn in early October. I think that by that moment we will already receive a response to our query and will be able to make a final decision concerning these criminal proceeding," he said.
