The water supply in Crimea will depend on the level to which the water in the Kakhovka Reservoir will drop.
The ex-Deputy Minister of the Environment Mykhailo Khorev told about this in an interview with Glavkom.
"The Crimean Canal used to have water supply from the Kakhovka Reservoir. Everything will depend on the level to which the water in the Kakhovka reservoir will drop. From what we see in the video [of the destroyed dam - ed.], I assume that the water level will drop to the bottom," explained the former deputy minister.
As the ecologist noted, no one knows the current state of the dam, which is at the bottom, but the water level will most likely drop.
"Step by step, water is flowing out of the cracks, breaking the bottom under the pressure, breaking the walls. Given the volume of water and the speed, the water keeps doing its job. This is my opinion. The destruction continues during the whole day," Khorev said.
Earlier, the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in an evening video message stated that the aggressor country Russia destroyed the Kakhovka Reservoir because it understands that it will have to flee from the temporarily occupied Ukrainian peninsula."
