This project has to be forgotten: Aksionov claimed that water located under the Azov sea is unsuitable for consumption.

This statement comes from the head of the Russian occupational administration in the occupied Crimea, Sergei Aksionov, reported by Russian-controlled Crimean media. 

“There is some kind of water there [under the bottom of Azov sea – ed.]… It is not too deep, and there is no problem getting it. The issue is that most likely it has…the number of hard particles and other things is above the norm – the content of minerals is too high. And how can we use water with high mineral content? We’d have to filter it. To filter a million cubic meters or two within a day is unreal. In this situation, we have to forget about this project and build two demineralized water plants in Frunze and Yalta. This is the only solution. There is no other way,” said Aksionov. 

Earlier, the occupying authorities of Crimea postponed a decision on the construction of demineralized water plants in the village of Frunze, Saki area of Crimea, until they evaluate the deposit of water under the bottom of the Azov sea. 

As we reported earlier, the occupying authority of Crimea announced their plans to build demineralized water plants in the Sudak area, in Kerch, Feodosia, and Yalta. The head of the occupying authority of Crimea, Sergei Aksionov, claimed that demineralization of water is the only guaranteed way to improve the water supply in Crimea. 

In turn, the Russian government believes that those plants would not solve the problem of the water supply of Crimea but would only be helpful as a reserve source of water.
