Residents of the annexed Crimea do not lack water, but the occupants do not have enough water resources to expand their activities. This was stated by chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov, RBC reported.
In particular, according to him, the occupiers do not have enough water to build housing for servicemen and for displaced residents.
"There is no shortage of water in Crimea to such an extent that people do not have enough water for their normal life, but the water is required for many areas that are now deployed by the occupiers, in particular, the construction of housing for the military and for those who are relocated from Russia," Chubarov said.
At the same time, he stressed that the solution to this problem was possible only by supplying Dnieper water from the mainland of Ukraine.
As we reported earlier, Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine, Minister for Reintegration of the Temporary Occupied Territories Oleksiy Reznikov stated that Ukraine was not going to restore water supply to the temporarily occupied Crimea until it was de-occupied.
