"I am very happy that the German government delegation is here today. They came to Kyiv for a day to discuss options for the implementation of the project to complete the Podolsk-Voskresensk bridge crossing. This means that there is a great interest in this project," Klitschko said.

"We have the spirit to implement this project and we use all opportunities to build this bridge and put it into operation in the coming years," said Klitschko.

He noted that the German government had allocated EUR 200,000 to make an expert assessment of the project.
