Dnieper will go to a round of Ukraine


If Russia in reply closure by Ukraine of the North Crimean Canal decides on the turn of the rivers flowing across the Ukrainian territory, but originating in the Russian Federation it will have catastrophic consequences for Kiev.

About it in article published in Nezavisimaya Gazeta is written by the Russian historian and the publicist Alexander Shirokorad.

It reminded that the hydrologist, the corresponding member of RAS Victor Danilov-Danilyan told that Russia has all technical capabilities for the response to water blockade of the Crimea and overlappings of sources of Dnieper River and transfers of its waters bypassing Ukraine.

"In 2014 Ukraine blocked the Crimean channel supplying with water up to 85% of the territory of the Crimea. But overlapping of water is often regarded as the act of war. So, on attempts of Syria to take away a part of waters of the Jordan River Israel it is massed applied artillery, tanks and aircraft. This conflict became history as Fight for water of 1964-1965. To compensate to the Crimea closure of the North Crimean Canal, Russia spent tens of billions of rubles. The exact sums are not disclosed. Nevertheless completely it was not succeeded to offset loss. An example - accident in Armyansk", - Shirokorad notes.

according to him, this situation - an excellent opportunity to force Kiev to sit down at a negotiating table about the status of the international Dnieper River.

"Why international? Yes because Dnieper which at us got used to be considered the Ukrainian river has the same reasons to be considered as the Russian river. 880 km Dnieper flow across Ukraine, but 485 km - across Russia. Ukraine possesses less than a half of territories of a reservoir of Dnieper. About a half of water receives the Ukrainian Dnieper from the Top Dnieper and the right inflows following from the territory of Russia", - the author pays attention.

It also reminds that in 1936 the Politburo approved the project of creation of network of the "Supreme reservoirs" called so as they were in upper courses of Dnieper, Oka and Don. Works were begun, but they were prevented by war.

"In what it will manage? Of course, exact calculations, but as it is represented are necessary, anyway the sum will be 10 times less the fact that vbukhano in water supply of the Crimea in 2014-2018 and construction of Krymsky Bridge. And here for Kiev consequences of turn of the rivers will be just catastrophic. In the political and economic plan, certainly", - Shirokorad summarizes.
