Transfer of water from the Kuban to the Crimea will cost more than the Crimean bridge

The critical situation with the provision of Crimean residents with water has not yet received its resolution - after 2014, Ukraine closed the North Crimean Canal for the peninsula, which at one time provided 85 percent of the water needs of Crimean residents. The lack of water observed since last year aggravates the problem. In this regard, the experts thought about the possibility of transporting water resources from the Kuban River to the Crimea. But how realistic is this, and how much will such a project cost the Russian treasury?

According to the State Committee for Water Management and Land Reclamation of Crimea, about one cubic kilometer of water per year is needed to meet the needs of the peninsula. To supply this amount of water, it will be necessary to build a reservoir - two pipelines with a diameter of 4-5 m each will go from it from Taman, then the water will be delivered to Crimea through a tunnel or bridge.

The cost of the construction project to transfer part of the flow of the Kuban River to the territory of Crimea will be from 350 to 400 billion rubles

- such data to the agency FAN voiced in the State Committee.

Thus, the transfer of water from the Kuban to the Crimea will cost the Russian Federation more than the Crimean bridge - the cost of this object, excluding access roads, was at one time about 228,3 billion rubles.

The situation is greatly complicated by the lack of water in the Kuban itself. In addition, according to Roman Avdeev, head of the Kuban Basin Water Administration of Rosvodresursov, the intake of large volumes of water from this source can lead to the degradation of the ecosystem that has developed in the Kuban, and also affect the unique biological diversity of the Azov Sea.

    Have you decided to poison the Crimea with water from the Kuban River? Since 2001, it has been forbidden to even wet your hands in it, and they have its water on the peninsula?

    Most likely it is necessary to liquidate agricultural enterprises. production that requires watering or leaving only very valuable. Industrial production where water is required, use a closed cycle and industrial water.
    Transferring water is too expensive, if only in an emergency, to supply the population with water.
    Desalination can be counted for money if someone is willing to pay for such water for irrigation or industrial needs, then a flag in hand.

    Whenever they determine the direction for economic activity on the territory, they look at the availability of resources, and if they (water) are not there, then it is necessary to develop something that does not require this resource.

    For some reason, sturgeon breeding is not practiced in the desert.

        In Israel, "sea fish" ... that is. they use not fresh water, but salty sea water.

        As for the Saudis, we have.
        I suspect that they are even commercially profitable. There is a target consumer, there are no princes like dogs. Officially, they are not allowed a lot of seafood by religion, alcohol is not allowed. How can a prince have dinner so that the price tag is worthy of a high, and foie gras are already in the liver. Freshly caught trout is king. Also from the royal show, I remember the dish made from the tongues of nightingales.

          You're welcome! In fact, the Israelis can get the most out of what they have! When in the USSR in the 60s-70s VDNKh was in vogue, and there they were proud of a cow that gives either 6 or 7 thousand liters of milk a year, then in Israel such cows were shot - there milk yields were 9-10 thousand! And this is in the absence of huge pastures!

      You do not have enough of this meager number of calibers for Syria, and you are thoughtlessly scattered with penny allowances, subsidies, maternity capital and pensions, due to which weapons are made. Not a statesman!

        Do not worry, there will be enough air bombs for you, a volumetric explosion, and for the few air defense systems of Ukraine, which have not yet collapsed from old age and the lack of native spare parts, the Russian Federation will have enough Caliber and Iskander and anti-radar missiles

      Our budget will definitely not be able to cope with this.

    The shortage of water in the rivers of the Russian Federation is treated by blocking Russian rivers whose water goes to Ukraine and the direction of their waters to the Russian Don and Volga.

    Area of ​​Israel - 20 km² (s)

    Why is it difficult for Mr. Aksyonov, comrades, to fly at public expense and ask why your water (with the desert) is normal, but with me, with the steppe, like in a bad collective farm ...? Gee-gee-gee ...

    For a long time, the Russian authorities could solve the Water Problem of Crimea, even if they did not immediately suppress harshly, did not discourage the gangs of the Turkoman-Bandera small extremists in every possible way (electrically-water-commodity) to "block the Crimea" and profit from this "blockade" for years!
    Decades old successful "wet experience" and desalination "projects" of the same Israel in plain sight - take it and use it if you think about the country and about the people in it!
    It was clear, however, that Aksyonov and his "team of Ukrainian-Crimean Tatar officials who changed their shoes in a jump" would not get rid of their usual "Ukrainian behavior" even under the bourgeois Russian government, and they would "build" the "Varangians from the mainland" on the spot according to their own way of thinking and behavior "on" budget development "?! winked

    If the "almighty Kremlin" in 2014 "did not have enough gunpowder" immediately, without chewing snot, it is elementary to intimidate and discourage any scum from any desire to "block", "by secret intrigues, a cloak and a dagger," special forces, "inevitable individual punishment (please, the Israelis" secretly "eliminated another Iranian nuclear physicist and sent a signal to the rest of them, so he was in the civil service, and these were, in fact, amateur defenseless amateur bandits, mega-cowardly one by one, in the southern steppe, sleeping at night in purged huts and tents, southern nights are so dark ... that there is a lost an individual happened, maybe "he deserted himself", but such "unknown" oh how pointwise scary ... right ?! as an option wink of the then simple and low-cost "blockade prevention measures", because then, as a consequence of this initial Russian "patience" and irresponsibility, I had to pay more and more - there were "breakthroughs" in the Crimea of ​​"sabotage groups" of insolent Turkoman-Banderites, accompanied by the murders and injuries of Russian border guards and "Faces"!) to them (only after seeing this blatant impunity and the problemlessness of their complicity in the committed Crime !!!) local "Svidomo" marginals, in the Nazi-Gesheftyar rage, overnight "cut off the oxygen" of the multimillion Crimea with all its vaunted thousands of professional military contingent and a mountain of diverse (and, as it turned out, in that situation, completely useless! request ) weapons, then from that moment, if not in advance, it was already worth taking care The problem of providing water for the needs of the Crimean population, visiting holiday-makers and a permanent military contingent, as well as a diverse industry, agriculture and household economy, numerous garrisons and the military infrastructure of Crimea!
    As we see in fact, this was not done! The central and local Russian authorities have simply "clicked" this Problem, and the "fried rooster" has already "skipped" it, the Water Problem for the Crimea, but "things are still there" ??! request
