Who ordered to cut off the water supply?
Temirgaliev Rustam said that, according to him, the direct order to cut off the water supply to the peninsula gave the "so-called deputy head of the presidential administration of Ukraine Senchenko."

Minimum requirements of the Crimea in the water provided by local sources, the expert said

Ways to solve the problem
Medvedev promised to provide residents of the Crimea freshwater
The Russian government is considering various ways to ensure the Crimean freshwater. According to Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, to solve the problem "may be due to the construction of the aqueduct from the territory of Kuban (" Kuban water & quot;), the creation of reservoirs on the Taman Peninsula, the development of the underground fresh water in Dzhankojsky and Nizhegorskom area & quot ;. There is the option of building a plant for desalination of sea water & quot ;, - have Medvedev.
The Russian prime minister said that water is one of the key problems in the housing sector of the Crimea, as the peninsula is dependent in that regard from an external source - North Crimean channel.
