The head of the Crimean State Committee for Interethnic Relations, Albert Kangiev, criticized the intention of the Ukrainian side to complete the dam on the North Crimean Canal in order to make it as impossible as possible to supply water to the peninsula, RIA Novosti reports.
We will remind that earlier the Permanent Representative of the President of Ukraine in Crimea Anton Korinevich, whose office is located in the Kherson region, announced plans to complete the dam in order to “exclude water from entering the region as much as possible”.
During a conversation with the agency’s correspondents, Kangiev noted that the forecasts and plans that Ukrainian politicians draw for themselves are “simply ridiculous.”
In his opinion, this initiative is “another trick of the Kiev authorities to enrich themselves at the expense of budgetary funds.”
“What else is the construction of a dam we are talking about to prevent water from entering the North Crimean Canal, when water has not been supplied from Ukraine through the canal for more than six years, but, nevertheless, we are coping with all the challenges and tasks,” the agency’s source said.
We will remind that earlier the deputies of the Verkhovna Rada also demanded from the UN, European Parliament, OSCE, NATO and other international structures to increase pressure on Russia.
