Dzheppar briefs UN High Commissioner on real situation with water supply to Crimea

During an online meeting, First Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine Emine Dzheppar has informed United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet about the real situation with regard to water supply to the temporarily occupied Crimea.

"Emine Dzheppar briefed Michelle Bachelet on the real situation with the supply of water to the temporarily occupied Crimea, emphasizing the inconsistency of Russian fakes about the "humanitarian catastrophe in Crimea." She noted that Russia cares not about the permanent population of the peninsula, but about the implementation of its neocolonial policy, within which the Russian Federation resettled, according to various experts, up to 800,000 of its own citizens to the Crimean peninsula in violation of international humanitarian law, as well as the desire to satisfy its military needs in the context of the further militarization of Crimea," the Foreign Ministry’s press service reported.

The Ukrainian authorities have repeatedly stated that the water supply to Crimea will be resumed only after the de-occupation of the peninsula.
