Bridge connects Russia and China – level 1

22-06-2022 15:00

One month ago, Russia and China open a railway bridge. This bridge connects the two countries. Last week, a new bridge between Russia and China opens. This bridge is for cars.

Russia has big problems. Many countries don’t do business with Russia anymore. They don’t agree with the war in Ukraine.

Russia must make more business with China. The bridge can help. It makes travel 1,500 kilometers shorter.

Russian officials say that the bridge brings Russia and China closer.

Workers finish the bridge two years ago. It opens only now because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Difficult words: railway (trains), connect (to put things together), pandemic (when a disease goes to many countries in the world).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
