Prime Minister of Ukraine said that the issue of water supply of Crimea is not

the question of the water supply of the Crimea should deal with Russia, as “the occupying state”. This opinion was expressed by Prime Minister of Ukraine Denis Shmyhal at a press conference, according to “112 Ukraine”.

“of Course, this issue concerns us, but the resumption of supplies through the Crimean channel today on the agenda is not necessary, and it is not subject to any bargaining,” said Smigel, though, in his words, “the shortage of water in Crimea, the Ukrainian government is concerned”.

the North Crimean canal was built in 1961-1971 years to provide water to territories of the Kherson region and Crimea. The water in it comes from constructed in the lower reaches of the Dnieper river Kakhovka reservoir. Earlier, the channel provided the Crimea to 87% consumed water, most of which was spent on agricultural needs. Since April 2014 Ukraine has blocked the supply of the Dnieper water on the Peninsula. About the problems that gave rise to this decision, wrote “Rosbalt”.
