Having cut off the water in Crimea, Ukrainians began to lose their landowners

The well-known Ukrainian political scientist and video blogger Alexander Semchenko said that it is much more profitable for Ukraine, for economic and environmental reasons, to sell water to Crimea than to keep the North Crimean Canal closed. He recalled that even during the Soviet era, water was not supplied to the peninsula for free and money was paid for it.

In an interview with an online publication "Politnavigator" the expert noted that the work of hydraulic structures on the Dnieper is not cheap and the agrarians of the Kherson region are not able to independently pay for their work.

The principled position of Kiev could be understood if Ukraine completely stopped economic relations with Russia. However, this did not happen, and trade with Moscow continues. Consequently, there is no reason for a water blockade of Crimea. But worst of all is that Ukraine has already begun to lose its landowners due to rash policy, since it became simply unprofitable for them to conduct agricultural activities.

Due to the cessation of water supply to Crimea, the cost of water for the farms of the Kherson region has increased several times. In 2021, water prices will rise even more. Farmers are no longer pulling out its value. There is no agriculture without water

- explained the political scientist.

When Russia tries to switch gas transit to other directions, bypassing the Ukrainian GTS, a universal howl rises, demands are made to continue the transit of "occupying" gas through the territory of Ukraine. This is completely illogical. But our patriots don't need logic

- the expert gave an example.

In his opinion, we have before us in action the classic saying "neither to ourselves, nor to people." He is confident that Kiev is deliberately demonstrating its unshakable stubbornness. For the sake of satisfying this dubious "ego", the new Ukrainian elite is ready to sacrifice its own taxpayers and breadwinners.

The expert emphasized that while the water was going to Crimea and the Crimeans paid the expenses, the agrarians of the Kherson region had no problems at all. The entire south of Ukraine, including Crimea, was literally inundated with delicious and cheap products from the Kherson region. Now there is no such abundance.

Semchenko compared what is happening with a painful blow to the entire agriculture of Ukraine. He drew attention to the fact that agribusiness is one of the main pillars of the country's economy.

    Now the Crimea will be littered with the delicious gifts of the Kuban, and let Kherson choke on delicious bacon from Russia.

      And for dessert ...

      Ukraine during the marketing year (from July 2020 to June 2021) as of December 23 reduced the volume of cereal exports by 16% compared to the data for the same date last year.

      This is evidenced by the data on the website of the Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture of Ukraine.

      So, from the beginning of the marketing year to mid-December, Ukraine exported 24,75 million tons of grain. This is 4,7 million tons less than in the same period in 2019. Wheat for export as of December 23, 2020 sent 12,29 million tons (-2,1 million tons compared to last year), rye - 1,7 million tons (-3,3 million tons), corn - 8,33 , 2,6 million tons (-XNUMX million tons).

      The export figures for Ukrainian flour more than halved. As of December 11, 2020, 74 thousand tons of flour were exported, which is 107 thousand tons less than on the same date last year.

    I wonder how a person living in Donetsk at the moment can know the state of affairs of the Kherson agrarians? He successfully hangs in the "Peacemaker" base, his entry into Ukraine is closed, he was slapped in the face by Solovyov, Skabeeva, and even the opposition Ukrainian NewsOne - why should such a garbage video blogger spoil the reputation of a respected "REPORTER" ???

    What the command was given from Washington, this is what the Ukrainian authorities are doing. It is necessary to shut off the water in the Crimea - shut off. It is necessary to blow up the power lines in the Crimea-blew up. The transit of Russian gas through Ukraine has not yet been touched, so it has not been touched. Well, etc.

    During the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation from Ukraine, the Crimean Canal has become so dilapidated that it can no longer receive Ukrainian waters. To bring it to its normal state, huge funds and capacities are required, which are not and will not be in the near future ...
