The resumption of water supplies to Crimea was one of the conditions for further settlement of the situation in Donbas, which was put by Russian President Vladimir Putin at the talks in Paris in December 2019. This is reported by the chief editor of Yuri Butusov referring to sources.

According to him, during a telephone conversation between the presidents of Ukraine and Russia on February 14, Putin again demanded the resumption of water supply to Crimea as one of the conditions of the next Normandy  meeting.

“That is why at first the head of the Servant of the People faction, David Arahamia, and then the Prime Minister Denys Shmygal announced their intention to supply water to Crimea (Shmygal then denied his words). And that’s why the authorities sent requests to engineering organizations about the preparation of a project to resume water supply to Crimea," writes Butusov.

According to him, this is a test of public opinion.

"The president’s office is studying whether Ukrainian society is ready to make such concessions to Putin and whether the supply of water to Crimea can become a topic for agreements with Russia," the journalist said.
