On the occupied peninsula, the central heating will be turned on, but hot water will not be supplied to the houses of the Crimean people. That was reported by so-called Chief of Crimea Sergey Aksenov.

‘So far, there has not been any possibility for supplying the hot water due to the economy. We have received the petitions. The people asked us to make an individual schedule of water supply at weekends, but we do not have any technical possibilities for that’, reported he at the meeting of the Operational Staff For Water Supply.   

It is worth mentioning that the third stage of the severest water supply limitations has started in Simferopol and 39 settlements of Simferopol and Bakhchysaray Regions, since September 7th.  Drinking water is supplied hourly in the mornings and evenings. The main cause of such tough measures is drought as well as shoaling of the Crimean water storage reservoirs and the rivers feeding them. Water scarcity was also resulted from the vigorous activity of the occupying military group, the work of the seized manufacturing enterprises, and the Russian citizens’ overpopulation of Crimea, as well.
