The head of the Ukrainian delegation to the TCG, Ukraine's first president, Leonid Kravchuk, said this in an interview with UA: Ukrainian Radio, Ukrinform reports.
“Ukrainians live in Crimea, and if there is any humanitarian catastrophe related to water, we will be able to give people water,” Kravchuk said, adding that this only applies to water supply to the residents of the peninsula.
At the same time, Ukraine will not agree to provide water to industrial enterprises and military bases of the peninsula. “They say that it is possible to give water to people, but not to enterprises, military bases and the like,” Kravchuk added.
He recalled that in accordance with international law, a country that seized the territory, that is, the occupying power, is responsible for providing the seized territory with everything necessary, including water.
As Ukrinform reported earlier, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said that the issue of resuming water supply through the North Crimean Canal was not on the Ukrainian agenda.
