Vice Speaker Fix: Crimean authorities have ruled out the resumption of water supply from Ukraine

First Vice Speaker of the Crimean Parliament Efim the peninsula did not and will not raise the issue of resuming water supply from Ukraine through the North Crimean Canal. His words are quoted by RIA Novosti.

In August, the Investigative Committee of Russia opened a criminal case on ecocide after the water blockade of Crimea.
