Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine John Herbst has recommended Kiev not to supply water to Crimea. About it reports “UKRINFORM”.
“Of course, I would recommend Ukraine to preserve its policy in respect of the supply of the Crimea”, — said the diplomat. In his opinion, this would “maintain the high price of the Peninsula to the Kremlin.” Herbst also called for new sanctions against Russia by the US and the EU, but called them unlikely. It is noted that they can only enter in a certain aggravation of the situation.
5 March-Prime Minister of Ukraine Denis Shmyhal made for the resumption of water supply to Crimea, explaining that on the Peninsula there live Ukrainians. He then explained that the water is not possible because of the “occupation of the Peninsula”. However, speaking in the Verkhovna Rada on March 6, Shmigal said that Ukraine will supply water to Crimea, but only for drinking and household needs of the residents.
Problems with water began in the Crimea after joining Russia in 2014, as Ukraine has stopped supplying in the North-Crimean channel.
