In Kiev, they explained why the war between Russia and Ukraine for water for Crimea does not make any sense

Over the past few months, Kiev has not ceased to declare Moscow's desire to "attack" in order to get water for Crimea and solve other more global problems. At the same time, Deputy Prime Minister for the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine Aleksey Reznikov is sure that the war of Russia against Ukraine for water for Crimea is meaningless. On April 22, 2021, he spoke about this in an interview with the Ukrainian Pravda online publication.

In his opinion, if the Russian Federation decides to "take" the North Crimean Canal by force and even "annex" the entire Ukrainian South, the Crimeans will not receive the long-awaited water. He explained that the specified channel is an artificial structure, and not a natural waterway. Therefore, to talk about "the war for water", taking into account certain nuances, is possible only on a theoretical plane.

The Ukrainian official clarified that, if desired, the North Crimean Canal can be quickly destroyed. It is not difficult, and if necessary, it will be possible to disrupt the operation of the structure and the restoration processes on it for a long time. The object is very vulnerable. Therefore, for the canal to function properly, the Russians need to take control not only of the structure, along its entire length, but also of Kiev. Otherwise, the water may not get to Crimea, since “someone” will constantly interfere.

In 14, there was no one, literally, to defend our independence with you. There was no one to fight, to defend Crimea, just physically. There was no army, no law enforcement system - there was nothing, it was all destroyed

- he said.

It's different now. Reznikov is convinced that Russia, even with an army of millions, will not be able to carry out its plans, since it is always easier to defend than to attack. He has no doubts that Ukraine will be able to repel the "aggression". He recalled that the Armed Forces of Ukraine now have 250 thousand "bayonets", and the National Guard has another 50 thousand.

According to him, Moscow could lose about the same number of its military in the event of an "invasion." Therefore, he sees no reason for Russia to start a military campaign over water for Crimea.

    If the Russian Federation castrates a couple of Bandera people caught for committing sabotage on the territory of the Russian Federation and sends them to rot for life in sunny Solikamsk, and this is exactly what you need to do with the Bandera beast, then those who want to harm the Russian Federation will dramatically decrease ...

      Oh how hard it will be to calculate

      Dear, have you seen the photo at the beginning of the article?
      These are 99,9% of the canal structures. Now tell us how to blow up this bed with the forces of a sabotage group? And it is not so difficult to organize the protection of individual objects on the channel. Stupid Sumer blurted out stupidity, and you are discussing.

    They blew up the masts of power lines in the Crimea, and they will blow up the canal.

      I don't even know how to comment on this nonsense.
      How? How do you technically imagine this? Power lines are towers, you don't need a lot of intelligence. And this is a river with a concrete bed.
      Turn on your brain ... (c)

    The question is not worth a damn, the gutter remained in the possession of the outskirts, and the Crimea will receive water from environmentally friendly sources, not immediately, but necessarily.
