Russia could carry out an act of “aggression” for lack of water in Crimea, said in an interview with “Apostrophe” Deputy Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Vasily Bodnar.
“I don’t think Russia has abandoned plans to make his land corridor to the Crimea, and Transnistria. Especially considering the fact that the water in the Crimea less and less,” warned the diplomat.
Bodnar added that military experts know about the “real threat”. According to him, they need to consider the potential of the black sea fleet of Russia, “which is capable of conducting amphibious operations across the coast.”
The Deputy Minister added that the authorities are ready to restore water supply to Crimea only after the “return” of the Peninsula in the Ukraine.
On 1 June Deputy Prime Minister for reintegration of the temporarily occupied territories Alexey Reznikov called the condition of the water supply to Crimea returning to Ukraine as the Peninsula and the Donbass.
Problems with water began in the Crimea in 2014, as Ukraine has stopped supplying in the North-Crimean channel. After the reunification of the Peninsula with Russia and the beginning of the armed conflict in the Donbass relations between Kyiv and Moscow deteriorated sharply. Ukraine regularly accuses Russia of involvement in the fighting in the South-East of its territory. All accusations of the Russian side rejects.
