The Crimean Ambassador called the statement of Kiev about the threat of invasion provocation

Permanent representative of the Republic of Crimea under the President of Russia, Vice-Premier of the Crimean government Georgiy Muradov called provocative statement of the Ukrainian side about the threat of invasion of Russian troops with the purpose of restoration of the Dnieper water supply in the North-Crimean channel.

Earlier, the representative of the main intelligence Directorate of the defense Ministry of Ukraine Vadim Skibitsky stated that there is a threat of the use of Russian forces to unlock the water supply of the Crimea.

"The authors of these provocative statements are not even aware that Russia was cheaper to pay our neighbors in kind, blocking, as proposed by some experts, the water of the tributaries of the Dnieper on the border with Ukraine. But Russia is generous. Any kind of blockade, as does Kyiv, it is not. It increases the collection of water from the Crimean rivers, opens a new artesian wells, building bridges and power plants in response to transport and energy blockade of the Peninsula, friendly takes into the Russian Crimea, millions of Ukrainian tourists," - told RIA Novosti Muradov.

According to him, Kyiv "master of painting" again and again I paint surreal paintings capture by Russian troops of Ukrainian territory, trying to make "regular price from their Western curators".

"It seems that they're just begging to happen. And even offer a reason - a shortage of water in the Crimea, and the ability to unlock the North-Crimean canal, by which Crimea from Russia on the Dnieper river came fresh water," - said the Ambassador.

Earlier, Ukraine provided to 85% of needs of the Crimea in fresh water coming from the Dnieper through North Crimean canal. However, after the reunification of the Crimea with Russia water flow through the channel in the Republic was completely stopped unilaterally. The question of water supply was solved at the expense reservoirs of natural filling, which over the past year significantly obmelel due to the small amount of precipitation, but also by drilling wells and extraction of water from underground sources.
