Kremlin spokesman busts idea of water supply to Crimea in exchange for Donbas border

Peskov stressed Crimea could not be a subject of “any exchange.”

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has busted the idea of exchanging water supplies from mainland Ukraine to Russia-occupied Crimea for full control by the Ukrainian authorities of the border in Donbas.

“As for Crimea, this is a Russian region and, of course, the water supply of this region is provided within the existing development programs. If there are any proposals for additional water supply on a commercial or other basis, they can be considered,” Peskov told journalists, commenting on a question from an UNIAN correspondent in Russia regarding Chairman of the Servant the People parliamentary faction David Arakhamia’s statement that he would personally agree if water were supplied from mainland Ukraine to Russia-occupied Crimea in exchange for full control of the Ukrainian border in Donbas.

Peskov stressed Crimea could not be a subject of “any exchange.”

“As for Donbas, this is an internal Ukrainian problem, and you know we are doing everything possible to contribute to its settlement,” he said.

Answering a clarifying question from UNIAN whether it is possible to ensure border control by Ukraine in exchange for water to Crimea, Peskov replied: “The issue of border control must first be discussed with representatives of Donbas, representatives of the two ‘self-proclaimed republics.’ It is very difficult to say something without such contacts. So far, with a high degree of certainty, we may assume they will oppose changing the essence of the Minsk agreements, which were also signed by representatives of those two regions.”

    Who would like 5 minutes alone with this retard, and knock the shit out of his head? Even the appeasers at PACE officially recognised Muscovy as part of the war in Donbas.

    More kremtroll fake news.

    Don’t give them anything, if they think they can build up the necessary infrastructure let them try. I think we all know how well that will go!

    You can’t have Ukraine back, you gave it to Ukraine too many years ago. Luhansk, Donbass and Crimea are all parts of Ukraine.

    Not only that, we also want the area South of a line from Sumy in Ukraine to Uralsk in Kazakhstan, extending South to the borders of Georgia and Azerbaijan.

    We need to keep you fuckers away from the Caspian Sea, Azov and Black Seas before you fuck them up any more than you have already.

    You can keep all the Alcoholics in Rostov, take them back to vatnikistan along with the rest of the shit.

  • Pest-Cough stressed Crimea could not be a subject of “any exchange.”
    Then Ukraine must stress that there can’t be any water for Crimea.

    This Moscow mouthpiece barks nothing but bullshit. No bullshit is the fact that Crimea is turning into a desert and mafia land will have huge problems with this issue and the war in Donbass cannot be upheld forever and while it’s lasting, it’s a constant vacuum of Ruskie money. Naturally, this idiot would never admit any of this.
