Ukraine to completely halt fresh water supply to Crimea

Ukraine to completely halt fresh water supply to Crimea

Ukraine intends to cut off the supply of fresh water to Crimea by erecting a dike made of sandbags across the North Crimean channel, Itar-Tass reports.

According to eyewitnesses, cranes and other construction machinery were spotted 40 km from the border between Crimea and Ukraine, near the Armyansk-Herson interstate.

Following the reunification of Crimea with Russia, Ukraine decreased the flow of fresh water down the North Crimean channel to a third of the regular amount since April 14, and on April 24 closed off the channel’s sluicegates completely.
