My Russian is just about fluent and I can more or less read all of the above languages, though I cannot speak them.

The mapping software labeled the roads bilingually: in English and Ukrainian. How is that a problem?

The few words in the title you quoted mean "new interchange next to Paton bridge".

If this is an international thread, so in the title is better not to use the Cyrillic letters. Not everyone will understand what is written.

But if the moderators don't mind, we can talk here in Ukrainian or Russian. I'm not against it

Harrsion, sorry for my ignorance.
I speak russian, so did not have a problem with cyrillic, although it is better for everybody if you have it in english...
anyway, my point:
first thing which came to my mind reading deadj post was: you have a bridge named after George Patton, amercian general, but this should not be truth.

so who/what is paton ? or maybe there is a word "патон" in russian which i do not know ...

Міст Патона is the oldest and longest major road bridge in Kiev.

It was named after the designer:

Yes, it's a very slow project. Google Earth imagery shows it was under construction since at least April 2004. Now we're 8.5 years ahead in time and it's still quite far from being finished.

The street between Berehove and the romanian border should be modernized. The street is terrible. I drove there last Saturday.

Kerch Strait Bridge

The governments of Ukraine and the Russian Federation signed an agreement to conduct a feasibility study of a bridge or tunnel across the Kerch Strait in 2014.

The bridge - or tunnel - would connect Crimea with southern Russia. Kerch Strait is approximately 5 kilometers wide between Port Krym and Port Kavkaz. The strait is very shallow, so a causeway-type bridge is possible, however shipping and strategic interests may demand a large clearance bridge or a tunnel. A bridge-tunnel combination is also a possible option.

map of the area:

Would it be also for the railway? A sort of Fehmarntunnel on a smaller scale.
