For example, now in the Far East, SK Most, controlled by Ruslan Baysarov, is building two cross-border bridges across the Amur River in cooperation with Chinese colleagues. One of them - the road between Blagoveshchensk (RF) and Heihe (PRC) - journalists have already called the "Bridge of Friendship." The news reported that in May 2019, the docking of the two parts of the ferry took place, and currently the construction process is close to the final stage.
