Secretary of the National and Security Council Oleksiy Danilov stated that Ukraine cannot supply water to occupied Crimea as 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.
