“Water will not go there”: Zelensky refused to restore the Crimea’s water supply

During yesterday’s press marathon by Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, he was asked a question about a possible discussion with the Russian president about resuming water supply to Crimea through the North Crimean Canal.

Answering a question, the President of Ukraine noted that in order to start negotiations, the topic should be initiated by one of the parties. According to him, during a conversation with Vladimir Putin, this topic was not raised.

Vladimir Zelensky emphasized that on the issue of restoring the work of the channel “we are defending Ukraine”, and added that “water will not go there”.

In view of the aggravation of the situation in Ukraine with the need to carry out the withdrawal of AFU units in a number of sections of the contact line, it was hardly worth expecting another answer from Zelensky.

If for the "gunboats" (supporters of Poroshenko), as well as activists and nationalists of all stripes, the fulfillment of the conditions of the Minsk agreements was the reason for the tantrum and accusations of Zelensky of "harassment" (betrayal), then we can only imagine what would happen if the stated intentions were to resume water supply Crimea.

And as the past six months have shown, the new Ukrainian president is extremely weak in holding the blow, and even for the sake of fulfilling his campaign promises, he is not ready to go into conflict with the minority.

    If it were my will, I would have blown up this dam a long time ago. Why can Ukraine in the Crimea arrange diversions - a gas pipeline explosion, an attack on the border, but we will not be likened? Is economically strangling not our method? Our rulers would be better so sorry for their people!

    And after these statements, he wants to attract Crimeans to Ukraine? If the brother refuses the thirsty in a glass of water, then he is not the brother.

    - Well ... personally, I have written more than once about ... about ... about ... and about ... about ... about ... about .. - that Russia and Belarus need a giant and common laborious business ...
    - And so, if 3-4 years ago (perhaps today it wouldn’t work out anymore) Russia and Belarus would have taken on a gigantic project ...
    - The Dnieper originates in the Smolensk region ...

    The Dnieper, which we are accustomed to regard as a Ukrainian river, has the same grounds for being considered a Russian river. 880 km of the Dnieper flows through Ukraine, but 485 km through Russia. Ukraine owns less than half of the Dnieper catchment area. The Ukrainian Dnieper receives about half of its water from the Upper Dnieper and its right tributaries flowing from the territory of Russia.

    And further:

    The distance from the Smolensk region, where the Dnieper begins, to the Crimea is very significant - about 2000 kilometers. However, Russia has experience in implementing large-scale infrastructure projects. Crimean Bridge, Nord Stream 2, South Stream are vivid confirmation of this. There are enough qualified scientists in Russia. Although, first of all, a clear project is needed. It is necessary to calculate how much water Crimea needs and whether the peninsula can be provided in this way. Technically, it is possible to lay an underground pipe, and at the end point to install a pumping station. Of course, this will require colossal financial investments and complex calculations, since construction would affect major highways, roads, and settlements. We must not forget about the consequences for the ecosystem. But the most important thing is why the above-mentioned idea will not be given a go in Russia - disastrous consequences for the population of Ukraine.

    - But Russia, in spite of everything ... - cares about the "brothers" ...
    - So, earlier Belarusian specialists could have been involved in this "project" ... - This is where giant Belarusian dump trucks and other mining equipment would have come in handy ..
    - And Russia today would already ... - could have a dish of "two birds with one stone" on its table ... - and real water would come to Crimea and relations with Belarus would strengthen ...
    - But in Russia no one even deals with these issues ...
    - By the way ... - and our S. Lavrov more and more begins to remind just ... - an empty place ... - Alas ...

    But they did not allow him, that’s the whole conversation. If he wanted to, he would give instructions. He who wants to do is looking for ways, and he who does not want to do is looking for reasons.

    While Monica Zelensky rolls comedy, in front of the TV, APU throws equipment and troops near Donetsk. Recently, a friend came from Kharkov, she says - it’s scary how much equipment is in use. Yes, and friends from the militia say something will happen. Spy Volodya came home from Kiev.

    Zelensky will try to implement the Pristina variant. Now the Japanese promise to bring down our planes, which fly in the direction of the Kuril Islands ....

    And it’s clear to the fool that he won’t go, two hostile countries. It’s just that Ukraine took a breather to rebuild its ARMY and it does it.
