Ukraine gloats over mass drying up of Crimean lakes

In Kiev, which for a quarter of a century has not invested anything in Crimea, and even made a water blockade by blocking the North Crimean Canal, they almost openly gloat over the drought on the peninsula and relish the topic of dehydration of local water bodies. The forecast, voiced by Ukrainian ecologists, concerning the depletion of the Crimean water resources, was published by local media.

Environmentalist Margarita Litvinenko told Radio Liberty that Crimea is on the brink of an environmental disaster. Since 2014, ten lakes have dried up there and the pernicious process continues. At the same time, the authorities of the peninsula do not respond to requests from environmentalists and hide reliable information from residents.

She drew attention to the fact that in less than six months a mountain lake in the region of Big Yalta dried up. There is practically no water in it now, except for a few muddy puddles. Previously, many tourists gathered near this reservoir to admire the Ayu-Dag Mountain from it.

Where there used to be water, horses now graze. The famous Massandra vineyards were watered from this very lake

She specified.

Litvinenko explained that the reservoir needs to get water somewhere. Previously, the lake received water from underground sources and precipitation. But now there is practically no precipitation, and underground sources are gone. As a result, the reservoir dried up. She named the large-scale drilling of wells in the area as the main reason for the incident.

In addition, the lake near the village of Zalesnoye, Bakhchisarai district, has dried up. Previously, it contained a lot of the purest water. Lake Bogaily in the Saki region also disappeared.

The famous pink lake Sasyk-Sivash, located between Evpatoria and Saki, also ceased to exist. He's gone. But its disappearance is associated with sand mining, not drilling.

Ukrainian ecologists are confident that the situation with water in Crimea will only get worse. According to their forecast, in thirty years the peninsula will be deprived of all its lakes.

    On the weekend I visited my native village in the South-East of Ukraine and was also unpleasantly amazed - our old rural wells were completely shallow - at the bottom there were only fifteen or twenty centimeters of watery mules, and half a bucket was not collected! request
    Exactly for the same reasons - there was almost no precipitation and wells were drilled in many yards - exactly above the local aquifer, the soil was dehydrated - without moisture, the sunflowers on the roadside fields became "pygmy" on a par with them, and after all, these sunflowers used to grow taller than human growth)! yes
    So what are the "svidomye" fools in Kiev gloating about if we, in mainland Ukraine, have the same trouble with water as in Crimea ?!
    These parasitic villains, who "if only the neighbor's cow dies," are completely divorced from the earth and from reality! fool

    Crimea dries up without the North Crimean Canal, it seems that even investments in patriotic parks will not help. And with the drilling of wells it is necessary to finish.

      Was this summer in our Crimea. From Sevastopol to Evpatoria. I did not notice any special problems with drinking water - it is sold in each kiosk for 2-3 rubles per liter. They lived in a village outside Sevastopol, not far from a military airfield - a "general's" village. Water for irrigation and those. needs - borehole, drinking - downstairs in the kiosk. Inconvenient? We are strong. Swimming pool and household needs - borehole water, without a meter .. Were in the mountains, on the Grand Canyon. Borehole water. The grapes are growing, the flowers are blooming. There are no insurmountable problems. So privet ,'re coming out-Bandera. "We will survive this trouble. You - no!" (from). And then the people will judge you. Do not reach the plane. And Europpa is not a decree to us!

    It is foolish to deny that there is a serious problem. But it is even more stupid to think that it will not be solved in the near future. Yes, providing the vast peninsula with drinking water from the remote mainland of Russia would be considered an engineering miracle. And to realize such a miracle in a short time will not work, it is not for you to paint a rusty fence, and there is money in Russia, and some kind of mentally healthy leadership too. Even if the latter allows a lot of jambs, compared to them 15 years ago, their quality has increased by an order of magnitude.

    Putin is not forever. Let's see how they will sing when the Russian Federation sends home workers and patriots of foreign countries who have lost their way in the Russian Federation, and at the same time blocks the rivers giving water to the Dnieper ... Dnipro HPP will have to twist with little hands
