The Deputy of the state Duma of the Russian Federation of the Crimean region Ruslan Balbec described as "nonsense" the statement of the leader of the banned in Russia as extremist organization "the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people"* Refat Chubarov about the alleged willingness of Russia to seize part of the South of Ukraine for the supply of the Crimea.
Earlier Chubarov said the Ukrainian media that Russia is ready to use military force to invade the South of Ukraine and to take control of the kakhovske reservoir in the Kherson region, where the water previously received in the North-Crimean canal to Crimea. According to him, to attack Russia is likely to involve mostly aircraft and the black sea fleet.
The head of the working group on international legal issues at the permanent mission of the Crimea under the President of Russia Alexander Moloch compared the position of leader of the banned in Russia "Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people"* calling to prevent the water supply of the Peninsula, with cannibalism.
Earlier Chubarov said the Ukrainian media that you must be prepared for the fact that Russia can "go to use force" against Ukraine, to ensure the water supply of the Peninsula, or to involve "third party" to exert pressure on Kiev authorities. Thus Chubarov repeatedly stated about the inadmissibility of the Dnieper water supply in Crimea.
