It turned out to be impossible to transfer the Kuban water to Crimea to save the peninsula from drought

Plans for the transfer of water resources from the Kuban to the Crimean peninsula turn out to be unrealizable due to the high cost of transportation. This was announced by the former Minister of Ecology of Russia and the head of the Institute of Water Management of the Russian Academy of Sciences, academician Viktor Danilov-Danilyan, on the air of the television channel "Crimea 24".

Look what is happening now in the Krasnodar Territory and in the Kuban. Gelendzhik and Anapa do not have their own water - this is a disastrous situation. These territories are now also shallow years, as in the Crimea. In the Kuban basin, such a water "crop failure" can last up to five years, and there is simply nowhere to get water for Crimea

- the expert noted.

The academician also spoke about plans to transfer water from the Don to the Crimean peninsula - for this it was planned to lay a pipeline along the bottom of the Sea of ​​Azov. According to calculations, the cost of such a project would be too high.

We analyzed how much it would cost to build such a pipeline. It turned out that all the plastics produced in Russia would not be enough to implement these plans

- Viktor Danilov-Danilyan explained.

According to the ex-minister, the only possible source of water resources for the Crimeans is the Dnieper, but now access to it is closed, and it will remain so for a long time. Therefore, water must be taken in Crimea itself and a more rational approach to local water supply sources.

    - Yes, you can ... why is it impossible ... ???
    - It will cost a little ... - but ... it is quite possible ... - Only here in the Kuban itself there is no "extra water" ... - to say the least ...
    - So already today, water should be supplied to the Kuban itself ... - for the needs of the Kuban itself ... - So ................

      It is problematic to maintain the steppe Crimea without Dnieper water. People will be forced to leave there.

    Inadvertently throwing off a couple of tons of red food coloring in the Dnieper (you can use fresh frozen fish), and to the cries of "what is this?" to answer - the blood of Crimea, suffering from thirst, which could turn into an ecological disaster for Ukraine ...
    We are not like that, so be not like that with us! And there, you see, the Dnieper water in Crimea will appear faster ...

      Yes, yes, that's how there is no water for Crimea. And the pipeline cannot be laid along the seabed - like, it's expensive. It is for the Turks, Germans and Chinese to run the pipelines they do not need practically at their own expense, Russia is "not expensive", and everything is "expensive" to its citizens near the Kremlin. Nuclear desalination plants are also expensive; building underground water storage facilities to avoid evaporation, as is done in China, is also expensive. The only thing that the Kremlin's "effective managers are smart enough for is to drill wells and pump out underground water reserves, yes, they will soon run out and be replaced by salt water, simultaneously salting the Crimean small rivers and streams, and destroying the vegetation around them, but who is interested in this - the main thing is, "cheap" and for a short time will help with water, and there at least the grass will not grow.

    There are always more than one outputs. First of all, it is necessary to start with establishing order in the use of water resources, up to the adoption of a separate legislative act. Water collection, desalination plants. Yes, and I agree with the opinion voiced here that building gas and oil pipelines of large diameter (even unprofitable ones) for thousands of kilometers is easy, but here it is expensive ...

    Hmm, well, at least someone said, albeit bitter, but the TRUTH! But, after all, 5-6 years ago, Crimea was promised heaps of desalination plants! That would be a huge help in solving water problems! I wonder why this project died?

    Dnieper originates in Russia. It is necessary to turn its course to the Don. All issues will be resolved.

      Petru Vladimirovch: Capturing the Galan Mountains? Sorry, I don't remember exactly the name ..
      As I remember writing, together with the population of local "villages".
      "Dissenting go out! ..." from Galan Heights ..
      And most importantly, the SPECIALLY-democratic West and the United States are silent and there are no claims "about the seizure and occupation of the territory of the Syrian state" NOT A WORD ... Why! This is WHOM OCCUPATION IS NECESSARY

    We'll have to build a new canal from the Don to the Kuban. Nothing is impossible. Let the whole world fold and build. At the same time, we will regulate shipping in Ukraine.

    It is cheaper to privatize eastern Ukraine than to pull pipes.

    Carry on the Crimean bridge. And in general, what is the "expensive" in relation to water .... Crimea for us vegetables from a vegetable storehouse called Russia-roads and we will not stand for the price
