The occupant authority of the Russia-annexed Crimea laid the water pipeline to Perevalne village, which hosts a military unit base. Krym.Realii reported that on Thursday. The pipeline runs from Balanovske water storage previously used to irrigate farmers' lands.

"The deficit does not prevent the Russian authority from their will to supply water to the military units based in Crimea. An engineering unit (...) laid the pipe from Balanovske water storage in Bilohirsk district to Perevalne village, where the Russian military units stand", the message says.

The occupant government of Crimea previously claimed intentions to ask Ukraine to bring water from Dnipro to the peninsula. 

Until 2014, 85 percent of Crimea's water supplies were supplied by Ukraine; the water came via the Northern Crimean channel, which ties Dnipro with the peninsula. After the annexation of Crimea by Russia, Ukraine ceased the water supplies.
