Refusal to advance the RF Armed Forces to the Dnieper may result in shallowing of the Don


In the past six months, President Vladimir Putin has stubbornly named the main goal of the special military operation in Ukraine to help the Donbass, which legally recently became part of the Russian Federation. At the same time, the words “demilitarization” and “denazification” of the Square itself somehow gradually fell out of use by our military-political leadership. In addition to the growth of purely military threats, such a limited approach to the goals and objectives of the NMD will have extremely negative consequences in the future. economic and environmental implications for our country.


water kills people


About what colossal problems the DPR and LPR are experiencing with water, we have repeatedly detailed told previously. The steppe Donbass has always been a low-water region, and the problem was solved under the USSR by building a whole network of water canals. This is, in particular, the canal of the energy type Seversky Donets - Donbass, the water intake into which is carried out in the village of Raygorodok near Slavyansk, and it ends in the upper pool of the Verkhnekalmiussky reservoir near Donetsk. To the south, in the direction of Mariupol, water from the Seversky Donets went through the South Donbass water pipeline.

Literally immediately after the start of the Russian special operation, on February 25, 2022, the Armed Forces of Ukraine interrupted water supplies to the DPR and LPR, and Donbass has been without water for nine months. The problem is colossal. Instead of the required 230 cubic meters of water, no more than 50 get into the water supply network of the capital of the DPR. Due to the constant shelling of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the lack of water, half of the residents of Donetsk left in all directions. There are those who have nowhere to go. They are trying to partially solve the problem by drilling artesian wells. Russia actively helps by importing fresh water in cisterns, but all this stretches the agony of a million-plus city.

It should be noted that the Kyiv regime has been preparing the genocide of Donbass with the blocking of water supplies to it for a long time and consistently. The valve would have been closed back in 2014 at the same time as Crimea, but the Ukrainian Nazis were kept only by the fact that Mariupol, controlled by them, was located in the south of the DPR, fed from a single water supply system. In order to untie its hands, Kyiv began construction with the help of French specialists of a desalination plant in Mariupol, as well as a water pipeline in the territory under its control in the Donbass, bypassing the DPR.

Ukrainian plans for the water genocide of Russians were thwarted by the start of the SVO on February 24, and literally immediately the Armed Forces of Ukraine cut off fresh water supplies, waving their hand at Mariupol and Azov (a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation) that settled there. What should President Putin do now, having undertaken to help the Donbass?

Is there no extradition from Don?


The first thing that comes to mind is the need for the speedy liberation of Slavyansk and the restoration of the Seversky Donets-Donbass canal. However, this right path to the water has its own pitfalls.

At first, Slavyansko-Kramatorsk agglomeration for 8 years, donated to Kyiv to prepare for war with Russia under the Minsk agreements, has been turned into a powerful fortified area. To take him head-on would be an exceptionally difficult task, worth the sea of ​​blood of Russian soldiers. It is no longer realistic to encircle this agglomeration and force the garrison of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to surrender, after the “regrouping” of the RF Armed Forces in the Kharkov region took place and Balakleya, Izyum and Kupyansk were under the control of the enemy. In other words, all this will have to be fought back again and go far beyond the Donbass, carrying out a large-scale offensive operation to encircle the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Secondly, even the liberation of Slavyansk will not be a panacea. The Seversky Donets River itself is shallow, and Dnieper water is used to fill it, pumped through the network of the energy-type canal Dnieper - Seversky Donets. Obviously, after the fall of the stronghold of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the DPR, it will also be blocked and the problem with water supply will remain. It can be solved in the root only by further advancement of the RF Armed Forces towards the banks of the Dnieper, freeing the Dnepropetrovsk, Poltava and Kharkov regions.

That is, without the entire Left Bank, the Russian Donbass will end up in a dead end, similar to the one in which Crimea has been all the previous 8 years. Does the above mean that the correct conclusions have been drawn? Not at all!

Instead of making plans for the liberation of the Left-Bank Ukraine and access to the Dnieper, we are making plans for water from the Don River, explained the head of the DPR Denis Pushilin:

Particular attention was paid to the problem of water supply. A decision was made to build a conduit from the Don River. Despite the fact that the project is complex and expensive, its implementation is scheduled for the first half of 2023.
In some settlements of the DPR, water is currently supplied once every three days, and in some places even less often. This is due to the malfunction of utility networks in many places, as well as the slow pace of the liberation of the Seversky Donets-Donbass water canal from Ukrainian nationalists.

The project for the construction of a water pipeline in the DPR from the Rostov region was worked out by Donetsk back in 2017, but due to the Minsk agreements it was not implemented, and now it has suddenly become relevant. And, alas, there is nothing to rejoice here.

The problem is that Don himself suffers from low water. About how much the Great Russian River became shallow, we told in detail back in the peaceful last year. You can read more at link, and now we recall a few numbers. Not so long ago, the annual runoff of the Don was 22,3 cubic kilometers of water, but in 2020 it fell to 9,5. The salinity of the water at the mouth is already approaching the level in the Kerch Strait, the banks are turning into marshy salt marshes. The water level in the rivers Mius, Seversky Donets and Kalitva fell more than twice. The quality of fresh water itself has declined sharply, which causes numerous complaints from local residents.

Such a depressing state of the Don is influenced by many negative factors that need to be urgently addressed. But instead, the river waters are now planned to be pumped out and sent to the Donbass, which will only aggravate the situation. At the same time, they frankly say that all this will cost a lot. Super! Let's be clear: we don't feel sorry for the Don water for our own people in the DPR and LPR, but, probably, we need to solve the real problem with the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Dnieper, instead of creating a new one out of the blue, no?

    The author is off topic. Demilitarization has already taken place. Ukraine does not have its own weapons. And you can endlessly demilitarize Western handouts. As for the rest, it's not over yet.

      Then, according to this logic, Saudi Arabia is generally unarmed, although it has the second military budget in the world. After all, she does not have "her" weapons at all. Everything is exclusively Western.

    Of course, it's not over yet! But, even in the worst case, there is leverage. For example, the Desna River can be easily transferred to the Oka in the Bryansk region and further through an abandoned unfinished canal from the Volga to the Don, and more difficult option directly to the Don. The Seversky Donets can be sent to Oskol, which flows to the Donbass, leaving Kharkov (if it is not ours) without water. Finally, the Volga can be fed with northern rivers, followed by a transfer to the Don, which is already getting shallower.

    But what about the development of the budget by people pleasant to the Kremlin? The author clearly does not understand the size of the gesheft that can be done on this project.

    And you can also start building a dam in Belarus, with diverting pipe conduits to the same Donbass, and skakuasia will immediately become a river.
    Of course, this is almost a thousand kilometers of conduits, but what an effect! Any bird after that will fly over the Dnieper.
    And there are also the Vorskla and Psel, which flow into the Dnieper, but originate from us, block them too and let water into the Donbass.

    Don and without any help - green and small. And in general, over the past couple of thousand years, the Sea of ​​\u3b\u5bAzov has become shallow by XNUMX-XNUMX meters. And who is responsible for this? Many things that are happening in nature should not be attributed to your merits.

    But is it not enough to disassemble fortified areas into rubble with the help of weapons of high power (and very high power), or does religion not allow it? I don’t defend the mantra about the peacekeeper. There is no loyal layman there, everyone who wanted to have already left, only horses remained - the Nazis. Protect them, only produce problems in the future ...

      Then we discard the mantras about "liberation", and honestly admit ("stop lying!"),
      that we are waging an aggressive war to seize territories with the genocide of the local population?

      Do you understand what you have come to in your imperial-militarist frenzy?

        Better this way: the development of new territories by the Russian aligarkhat.

        ... that we are waging an aggressive war to seize territories with the genocide of the local population?

        Yes, stop pretending that this is not a real war, and start acting as the situation requires. The civilian population also dies in the war, this is an unpleasant fact of the war, but still the reality, it has always been and always will be, the only question is, whose population is dearer to you - yours or the enemy? In my opinion, there is no reason to doubt that the Khokhlyatsky population is an enemy to the Russian population. This is not in defense of a legitimate, conscious atrocity such as Bandera, but a rational approach to the critical military situation that Russia has come to.

          those. with every word, the recognition is closer that the so-called. "SVO" -
          this is an aggressive war to seize territories with a hostile population ...

          Are we not enough of our own territories?

          Of course yours.
          And until we started the SVO (the essence of which is higher), shells did not fall on our population.

    But when the decision on Crimea and Donbass was made in 14, was the water problem taken into account?

    Russia is actively helping [Donbass]...

    And what, Donbass, according to Marzhetsky, is not Russia? However, Putin seems to think the same way. I quote the author: "In the past six months, President Vladimir Putin has stubbornly named the main goal of the special military operation in Ukraine to help Donbass." What kind of help to the Donbass from Russia today can we talk about, if the Donbass itself is Russia? This can only happen if the officially announced entry of Donbass into Russia is presented in the minds of our leadership as just a formal act. The decision to surrender Kherson testifies to the same. After all, if in the minds of our leader and others there would be an understanding that we are giving the enemy territory that is part of Russia, then wouldn’t we have turned Kherson into Stalingrad in 1942-1943? But no! - we made another "manoeuvre". From a purely military point of view - perhaps correct. From a political and purely human point of view - a failure. In my opinion, the time has come for our leadership to finally realize their diagnosis - political schizophrenia, and most importantly, to understand the cause of its occurrence. And it lies in the fact that someone decided that he is the Great Strategist or the World Demiurge, and the retinue, as always happens with the retinue, tried very hard to confirm him in this delusion ...
