The Verkhovna Rada Human Rights Committee took the decision on the impossibility of supplying water to the Crimea until it is de-occupied. This was announced by the chairman of the Kherson Regional State Administration Yuri Gusev, who was present at the committee, on his Facebook page.
"Representatives of the committee expressed a clear position regarding the inadmissibility of considering the issue of water supply to Crimea, while the peninsula remains annexed," Gusev wrote.
Earlier it was reported that the head of the Servant of the People faction, David Arahamia, would agree to let water into the annexed Crimea in exchange for concessions regarding Donbas from Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In response to such a statement by Arahamia, Refat Chubarov, leader of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, said that letting water into the occupied Crimea means surrendering half a million Crimean Tatars to Russia.
We will remind, member of the budget committee of the Verkhovna Rada, people's deputy from the "Servant of the people" Yuri Aristov said that Ukraine is considering the option of selling water to annexed Crimea.
