If Crimea faces a humanitarian catastrophe, Ukraine may resume water supply to the peninsula, but only for the needs of the population. This was stated by the head of the Ukrainian delegation to the Trilateral Contact Group on Donbas Leonid Kravchuk on the air of Ukrainian Radio.

"If there is a humanitarian catastrophe that is related to water, we can give it to people," Kravchuk said.

At the same time, he ruled out the possibility of supplying water for industrial enterprises, military bases, etc. - the Ukrainian people will never agree to this.

It is worth mentioning that Ukraine provided up to 85% of Crimea's freshwater needs through the North Crimean Canal.

As we reported earlier, according to Secretary of Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov, there is enough water for the population in Crimea.

“The fact that there is no water for the industry is another piece of cake. The position is quite simple; when there is the Ukrainian industry when Ukraine is there – the Ukrainian water will certainly be there,” the official noted.
