At the same time, the head of the Russian parliament of the Crimea reminded that part of the construction materials prior to the peninsula’s annexation came to the Crimea from the mainland of Ukraine, now supplies depend on the weather allowing for ferry transport, TASS reports.
"We have big problems in the Crimea with building materials, problems with inert materials. We don’t have our own sand, we previously imported it from Ukraine... We have a shortage of cement, it is produced here, but it is not enough for day to day needs. It is now delivered from the mainland of Russia, through the Kerch crossing - when there is a storm, can instantly disrupt deliveries for several days," said Konstantinov.
On Wednesday, the Head of the Crimean department of the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service, Timofei Kuraev announced the verification of prices for building materials on the peninsula.
At the same time, Kuraev has admitted that prices for construction materials in the Crimea are high, and are constantly growing. ■
