Aksenov accused Kiev of trying to create a humanitarian disaster in Crimea

The head of Crimea, Sergei Aksenov, called the shutdown of the water supply to the peninsula through the North Crimean canal from Ukraine a crime.

“This can be regarded as an ecocide, as state terrorism and an attempt to create a large-scale humanitarian catastrophe in the region,” he wrote on his page on the VKontakte social network, stressing that more than 2 million Crimeans received more than 80% of fresh water through the channel.

Aksenov supported the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding the water blockade of Crimea and called for criminal proceedings against its organizers.

Earlier, the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Maria Zakharova, stated that the water blockade of Crimea by Kiev could be qualified as a violation of its obligations under international agreements.
