It's not about Ukraine: the North Crimean Canal will not solve the problem of water on the peninsula


The capital of Crimea and 40 settlements of the Simferopol and Bakhchisarai regions switched to a limited water supply regime. There, due to the drought and the blockade by Ukraine, water is now supplied according to the schedule. The head of the Simferopol city administration Elena Protsenko informed the public about this.


The official said that the measures taken were caused by the shallowing of the Ayansky, Partizansky and Simferopol reservoirs, which provide water to the central part of the peninsula. According to her, about 350 thousand cubic meters were sent to the needs of the almost 160-thousandth Simferopol. m of water per day. But the situation worsened, so a decision was made to reduce consumption and introduce phased restrictive measures.

The first stage: on the night of August 23-24, the daily water withdrawal will decrease to 140 thousand cubic meters. m. Hot water supply will be cut off. The second stage: from August 31 to September 7 - it will decrease to 120 thousand cubic meters. m. Water supply will be introduced according to the schedule. The third stage from September 7 - will decrease to 100 thousand cubic meters. m and will be carried out by the hour - in the morning and in the evening

- said Protsenko.

In turn, a member of the Federation Council from Crimea Sergei Tsekov drew attention to the fact that the problem with the water supply of Crimea did not arise yesterday and it is associated with climatic features - summer heat and low rainfall. In his opinion, the North Crimean Canal, built during the Soviet Union, and closed by Ukraine in 2014, had practically no effect on the situation.

When I read, including in the central media, that the North Crimean Canal provided 80% of water, I know that this is not so

- he noted.

The senator explained that no more than 15% of the water from the canal was directed to the needs of the population. There were interruptions in water both in the USSR and in the Ukraine. Moreover, when Crimea was part of Ukraine, no one in Kiev raised a finger to try to resolve issues with the normal provision of water to the inhabitants of the peninsula. The North Crimean Canal did not solve the problem of water supply to the population, since it was created for agriculture. He recalled that in 1994 there was a drought in Crimea and Leonid Kravchuk flew to the peninsula.

I flew to the Dzhankoy region, walked through the fields there, and the wheat was ankle-deep. There was no rain and no harvest, and the North Crimean Canal was

- added the senator.

Tsekov is confident that Russia will be able to solve the water issue, because it has coped with the problems of the electric power industry and transport.

    Due to water leaks in the North Crimean canal into the ground, the underground horizons were regularly replenished with fresh water. Now artesian wells may be depleted and the place of fresh water will be taken by sea water from the Black Sea. And it would not hurt Tsekov, since 2014, to raise a question in the Federation Council about exerting the necessary influence on the government of Ukraine. Instead, the RF continues to supply the unfriendly regime with money and resources. For example, there is still no Sberbank, which became state-owned, in Crimea, but it still exists in Ukraine: Head Sberbank in Ukraine

    Back in Soviet times, geologists identified 2 horizons of about 800 m and about 1100 m, where water vapor condensation from the depths of the earth occurs. These two streams carry about 20 million m3 of water per day to the Azov and Black Seas. But on this the officials cannot steal anything, but on the seawater desalination tank there is where to eat as much as you can. So they sing songs about the atomic desalination plant, paid wise men, creating the illusion that there are no other ways.

    Whatever it was, Ukraine shit by shutting off the water. In return for the Russian Federation, it is time to cut off oxygen to Ukraine in every sense of the word, from the economy to the rivers flowing into the Dnieper.

      Everything that Russia will block Ukraine in the economy, the latter will calmly get through Belarus. Until the issue with the Belarusian "offshore" is resolved, it will not work to put pressure on Ukraine. The economies of the three countries are like communicating vessels, and it is not possible to close the valve in the "blue-eyed", at least for now. With regard to water, blocking the Dnieper and leaving Belarus without water, and at the same time producing swamps near Smolensk is not a good idea.

        Along with the efforts made to solve the problem, you need to closely monitor the situation with the dam.

        If they can fight for water, why can't we do the same? What will the UN Security Council say there?

          I believe the Security Council will not say anything, the United States will block the resolution.

            Then, if there is no resolution, it is possible to carry out what will be done with water before us.

              Again, we return to the option with the introduction of troops, which they have been trying to achieve from us for 6 years.

                This requires a good reason. That's all. And following the precedent.
                And procrastination can make matters worse. I mean rapprochement with NATO. Until they entered there, or became an associate member.

        There will be no swamps near Smolensk, water is needed in the Don and Volga. And Luka's problems, since he is so independent and multi-vector, are not a problem for the Russian Federation!

          On the one hand, you are not a light in the window and you will not be able to read all the consequences of such a decision. And second - who are you going to quarrel with - with Luka, or with the people of Belarus? If they (the people, not Luka) feel bad, then who will then need to be skinned, from the living?

            You remind me of the political instructors of the Red Army, who at the beginning of 1941 talked about the workers and peasants of Hitler's Germany. As the war showed, there were only a few in the Hitlerite army who refused to carry out the fascist orders of their commanders, and the bulk of these workers and peasants burned Russian villages along with their population, playing the harmonica. The people are responsible for the power they elect and their decisions, this time. The RB is not a part of the RF, but the RF has its own interests and there is no reason to put the interests of the RB, which even Crimea did not recognize as a part of the RF, above the interests of the RF, these are two.

          I can imagine the surprised faces of Belarusians watching how the brothers block the river with the words - here you are, since Lukashenka is so multi-vector. laughing Did you think well? I don't even consider the issue of ecology from water redirection.

    The point is precisely in the canal, any fresh water can be made drinking: either chlorinate or ozonate, coagulant, polyacrylamide, and even manganese are involved here. The water of the reaction chamber, sedimentation tanks, then filters, pliiiz have passed, you can safely drink. Ozonation, of course, is more expensive and more difficult, but still it is not to desalinate sea water!
