A government committee led by Russian Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin was established after the incident.

The Kerch strait bridge was started in 2015, after Russia merged the Crimea peninsula, and completed in 2018. The bridge worth billions of dollars connecting the Crimea peninsula with the Krasnodar region in southwest of Russia.
