Does Putin’s $4 Billion ‘Super Bridge’ Into Europe Violate Law?

Putin began construction of the bridge immediately following the Russian invasion of Crimea in 2014.While Putin, who awarded the $4 billion construction contract to his longtime friend Arkady Rotenberg, calls the bridge a “historic mission,” western countries believe it violates international law. As a result, sanctions have been imposed to delay its construction.But if sanctions didn’t stop Putin from annexing Crimea, why would they stop him now?
