Ukraine is not going to restore water supply to the temporarily occupied Crimea until it is de-occupied. This was stated by Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine, Minister for Reintegration of the Temporary Occupied Territories Oleksiy Reznikov during an interview with Interfax-Ukraine.
"Nobody is going to restore anything. There is a simple answer: we will supply our water to our Crimea after de-occupation takes place," he said.
Reznikov stated that Russia was solely responsible for this situation.
"According to the Geneva Convention, they are obliged to meet all humanitarian requests of the civilian population," the Deputy Prime Minister added.
As we reported earlier, on May 18, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky addressed fellow citizens on the occasion of Commemoration Day for victims of Crimean Tatars genocide.
"We believe that the day will come when Crimea returns to Ukraine. Crimean Tatars and Ukrainians will get home and gather at the same table, so as to say: Bizim ve siziñ azatlığıñız içün! For your and our freedom!" he said.
