Crimean bridge has not yet solved the main problem of the peninsula


In 2014, Crimea economically turned into an “island”. The need for ferry service has dramatically increased prices for all goods and food. There was hope for the Crimean bridge, which will connect the peninsula with the continental part of Russia and simplify logistics. However, this did not happen, and the cost of food for Crimeans is respected even by Muscovites.


As the locals joke gloomily, prices “defend” and protect the peninsula from overpopulation. In addition to jokes, this leads to an increase in social tension, which is unlikely to contribute to stability amid drought and the regime of so-called "self-isolation." Will the launch of the railway part of the Crimean bridge solve the problem?

Of course, the launch of railway communication is an important milestone in the economic development of the region. In the information center "Crimean bridge" said that literally today the movement starts in both directions:

A train with products of Crimean enterprises will follow the first route towards mainland Russia. Tanks with gasoline, gondola cars with fertilizers, grain carriers, cement trucks, as well as platforms loaded with rails will follow the second path in the opposite direction.



This is a really big step. But, as for food prices, it is hardly worth counting on their reduction. What gives reason to believe so?

At first, you should take into account the specifics of local trade, most of which traditionally falls on the markets. They also joke about this, that there is one board stall per Crimean citizen. Unlike the continental part of the country, network trade on the peninsula is not so developed. Prior to his accession to Russia, only two foreign players worked in the Crimea - Auchan and Metro. In 2014, they closed for “inventory”, but after all they resumed their work, re-registering management companies. Apparently, the owners did not want to lose their investments, but there is no question of further development of these networks in Crimea.

As for the domestic large federal retailers, they are afraid to enter the local market, rightly fearing the introduction of Western sanctions. Unlike the foreign Auchan and Metro, their activities will not be blind. However, there was one exception to this rule, which we will discuss further.

Secondly, the opening of such businesses is hampered by the local business climate, which has its own specifics. The only Russian retail chain that tried to enter Crimea is the regional Rostov-based Assorted Product. The company had ambitious plans and intended to not only open stores, but also to create its own production and build a logistics center. However, last year, "Assorted" began to curtail its activities in the Crimea. Here is how Sergey Makeev, chairman of the Crimea Trade Association, comments on this:

The reason, as far as I know, was the high rent. They do not pull it. I know what they have with the economy not fused and they leave the Crimea. I have information that they do not have a relationship with suppliers. Customers complain about expired goods in stores. Somehow they feel uncomfortable here.

With regard to high rents, experts attribute this to the decision of local authorities to raise rates. This happened, for example, in Sevastopol, as evidenced by Marat Tyunin, head of the city's Union of Entrepreneurs. Many local businessmen have suffered from this.

Thirdly, there are problems with the so-called "opacity of bulk procurement." In 2018, automobile communication with the continent opened, trucks drove along the bridge, reducing the cost of logistics. Crimean merchants objectively reduced their costs, but not prices. Indeed, why? Where the locals and visitors will get away from the resort, they will buy for as much as for what is sold.

So the logical question arises, but what will change the launch of railway communication in general?

    To talk about network trading, it would be nice for the author to visit Crimea and look at networkers, the main of which are in the whole 5.

    So the logical question arises, but what will change the launch of railway communication in general?

    Alas, this freight railway connection with Crimea is absolutely unprofitable and unprofitable ...- What to carry there ...- and what to export from there ???

    - If we assume that railway trains with tanks will go there, where fresh water will splash (they will begin to deliver fresh water), then these trains will go back empty ...;

    - If in Crimea they begin to build new super comfortable hotels, campsites and attractions for tourists; then when it will still be in demand and will pay off (after all, the problem with fresh water has not yet been solved);

    - If the construction of colossal military facilities begins in Crimea and a huge number of all kinds of mechanisms are needed; special equipment; building materials etc. And all this will be imported from Russia along the railway lines; this is unlikely ... these objects are already enough in the Crimea;

    - If suddenly a new Cosmodrome begins to be built in Crimea and ... and, too, will be needed: equipment, building materials, and all kinds of components, etc. (they will take and transport the Vostochny cosmodrome to ... to the Crimea ... -Hahah ...); something like that ... also - can hardly take place ...

    - And more for what and for what it can come in handy for continuous operation this freight railway message ??? - Commodities will go two or three trains once a week ... - But basically this freight transport railway message will stand idle ...

      If so, then mushrooms would grow on the tree. Maybe stop lying? Someone does not like the situation in the Crimea, so do not go in there with your fakes. Soothsaying soothsayers. In Crimea, there are plenty of speculators and parasites left. Everything will work out in the end. The legacy of Ukraine can not be immediately redone.

        - To lie ??? - And what's the lie ???
        - It’s a lie that in Crimea they deal with the problem of fresh water shortage ...
        - Personally, I am so anxiously worried about our Crimeans ...- how many proposals have already been made on this matter ... - Who else is more timid here ??? - Hahah ... - And all my suggestions are only about ... how to provide our Crimea with fresh water ... - Precisely - how to provide Crimea with fresh water ...

        In Crimea, there remained a lot of speculators and parasites. Everything will work out in the end. The legacy of Ukraine can not be immediately redone.

        - Yes, what a "legacy of Ukraine" ... - Even the canal that Ukraine has filled up with all sorts of shit and does not let water into Crimea ... - and then ... - not the property of Ukraine ... - Ukraine just cunningly used this alien channel ...
        - And from Russia it was only necessary for something ...- It was to raise our heavy-weighted military bombers and ... and bomb these bridges on the canal (and help bombers with MLRS attacks and heavy artillery strikes) that block the water in Crimea until there is no trace left of these jumpers ... - And no one would pick out ...- from the world community ... - everyone would understand Russia ...- Of course ...- they would be indignant, google would ... and quiet down ... - And Ukraine would immediately forget about how to create such nasty things ...- that jokes are bad with that ... - That's all ...- these jumpers would be done away with ...- Once and for all...
        - But Russia did not have enough political will ... - Alas ...

          Purely curious. How can you say something without understanding the question, as evidenced by your subsequent question?

          And last, it seems to me that blowing up other people's dams / lintels is the lot of terrorists.

              You can defend by various methods.
              For the sake of its security, the United States, for example, during the Second World War, its citizens of Japanese descent were driven into concentration camps, the British and Germans were strangers for their financial well-being, and the citizens of Rwanda, who underwent recognized genocide in the 90s of the twentieth century, somehow look askance at the French , Jews for any strange, from their point of view, sneezing missiles in other bushes, Ukrainians for the sake of higher humane goals even dry their Kherson region ...
              Glad we're not like that.
              We do not bomb the "proud" Balts, although there are no "smart" Ukrainians or "exceptional" Americans for good reason, although America has deprived us of a lot, which affects national security (rare materials, composites, all kinds of technologies, investments, even peaceful trade with third countries, raider seizures of our companies, breaking of important bilateral agreements), where is at least one of your comments in which you would call for a war with America? What do we need to bomb there to make us look like them? But there, you see, there will be no need to bomb the Ukrainian bridge - it will open itself ...
              Once in the 45th Russia stopped terror - they still thank. In the 41st it did not work out, but this one, perhaps, will succeed, so that the civilized humanists there would bite each other without us.
              Russian wars do not want and will not start it, it’s cheaper for us to build a new channel with fresh water under the Sea of ​​Azov. Therefore, this time, just by pulling out another fallen stick from the wheels, let’s go live further, to be offended by balding oaks, let them think that you are bald to their face ...
              Russia is not idle, although you do not want to notice this.

          No panic ... I'm in the Crimea right now ... and I don’t see anything in the private sector (water from the water supply). Maybe there is not enough irrigation, but there is no drought, as it is being inflated. Bottled water is cheaper than in Moscow. Water bottling is also cheaper. As for the products ... like, Moscow will be surprised ... that's how you lie. Almost everything is cheaper. Enrage ghouls all-scouts. Nothing to lie, washers. And personally, on my beach, the most expensive item on the menu is 450 rubles. Now compare this to Sochi and wash yourself. The average bill from a Sochi cafe for 4 people, two of which are children - 5000 rubles. This is not even KP, stupid Adler. In the meadow, I gave 5400 for a soup, two mulled wine, a piece of meat and a couple of juices ... the Peak restaurant, if that ... Crimea, the average bill from a cafe is also for four - 2000, 2500. With booze and meat. Whiners. And now compare this with Moscow.

      You are somewhat uninformed, because of such false conclusions. Firstly, mass construction of infrastructure is underway in Crimea, which requires a huge amount of heavy construction cargo and other things, shipbuilding, cargo of metal and other things are being adjusted. The area of ​​Crimea is close to European countries, like Holland, Denmark, so the demand for the future is huge. Crimea, the fertile land on which Hitler and Soviet Jews have infested. Today’s citizens of Russia - residents of the Crimea, can only be given the opportunity to flourish on this land, but under the Medvedev-Mishustins they still have little faith, but they are not eternal ...

    This is information for those who are constantly trying to cheat here - "Putin, lower prices!" The prices are set by the traders, and even if the delivery of goods will cost them nothing, and they will not pay taxes at all, they will not reduce the prices. The desire for profit is above all.
