Former Minister of Transport and Communications of Ukraine Yevhen Chervonenko commented on the water blockade of Crimea, initiated by the country’s authorities, and noted that Russia, in response, could bring down any Ukrainian economic industry. He stated this on the air of the Nash TV channel on Monday, May 3.
According to Chervonenko, despite the fact that from the point of view of Kiev, the issue of water supply to the peninsula is a kind of red line, it somehow violates the canons of international law, since it deprives the inhabitants of the republic of water, and such actions of the Ukrainian government can be described as an ecological and humanitarian genocide.
“Do you not understand that one day the market will be brought down to us? Any way – from electricity. The Belarusian nuclear (power plant. – Ed.) Will be thrown, and everything will fall down here, “the Federal News Agency quotes the message of the ex-deputy of the country.
On Sunday, April 30, the authorities of the Republic of Crimea announced their intention to name the persons in the form of the Ukrainian authorities involved in the water blockade of the peninsula.
On April 20, a working group of the Crimean parliament submitted materials on the water blockade of the peninsula to the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation. Konstantinov added that the preliminary damage to agriculture due to the water blockade is estimated at 200 billion rubles. He noted that other industries have also suffered, and residents of the region continue to experience inconveniences.
Earlier, in September, the former Ukrainian Minister of Transport and Communications Yevhen Chervonenko announced that if funding for the medical sector of Ukraine is cut, the citizens of the country will face a catastrophe, and the Kiev authorities are responsible for this, in his opinion. He added that only eight venereal dispensaries operate in the country and expressed concern about the treatment of patients with tuberculosis.
