Ukraine reduced water supply to the Crimea
Ukraine reduced the volume of water supply to the Crimea by the North-Crimean channel (the main waterway of northern Crimea supplying the republic with water from the Dnieper river) in three times, declared Rustam Temirgaliev, Deputy Chairman of the Council of Ministers of the Crimea, on April 14.
According to the official, to date the volume of water supply totals nearly 16 cubic meters /sec, as opposed to the standard rate of 50 cubic meters /sec.
Due to the current dependence of the Crimea from Ukrainian water supplies, the Government of the region is considering alternative water supply options. In particular, there is planned to build a pipeline across the Kerch Strait to supply water from Krasnodar Krai, or drilling of deep wells at the territory of the region.
