Secretary of the National and Security Council Oleksiy Danilov stated that Ukraine cannot supply water to occupied Crimea as liga.net reported.
According to him, it is impossible from a political point of view.
“My personal opinion: we cannot supply water to occupied Crimea. Moreover, from the political point of view, I believe, it is impossible. If the Russian Federation returns Crimea, then the water will be immediately supplied. It is a difficult issue. And it is impossible to believe that there is a simple solution,” he said.
Earlier, Head of Servant of the People party Davyd Arakhamia would agree on the water supply to annexed Crimea in the exchange for cessions by Russia’s President Vladimir Putin on Donbas issue.
Leader of Crimean Tatar Mejlis Refat Chubarov stated that the supply of water to occupied Crimea means the surrender of half of million of Crimean Tatars to Russia.
Member of the budget committee of the Verkhovna Rada, MP of Servant of the People Party Yuriy Aristov stated that Ukraine considers the possibility of water supply to annexed Crimea.
Later permanent representative of Ukraine's President in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea Anton Korinevych underlined that information about the possible restoration of water supplies to the annexed Crimea is a fake.
