July 28th and 29th 2022. Kerch peninsula, Russian-occupied Crimea. Evgeniy, Stanislav and their fellow fishermen fish from a camp sitting at the southern tip of the Kerch peninsula in Russian-occupied Crimea right next to the Crimean bridge. The 18km-bridge, partly destroyed on October 8th 2022 by a truck bomb, links Crimea to the Russian mainland and is a symbol of Putinâs determination to anchor Crimea into the Russian Federation since its annexation in 2014. The bridge is also considered an environmental disaster for destroying the ecological balance in the Sea of Azov, disrupting the flow of water between the Black and Azov Sea and impeding fish migration. The fishermen mentioned the fish population had dropped massively since the building of the bridge.
