A special military operation to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine has been going on for almost half a year. And all this time Donbass, for the protection of which the SVO was formally started, is not only under incessant shelling, but still without water. Water supply to the DPR and LPR is, as before for the Crimea, for them the most painful question, which will ultimately force the expansion of the special operation to the very Dnieper.
Only a heartless person could not call the situation in Donbas a humanitarian catastrophe. With heat above 35 degrees Celsius in the capital of the DPR for half a year there is no water. rather, she is, but it's too little. Instead of the necessary 230 thousand cubic meters of fresh water, no more than 50 thousand. Water is given regularly, for a few hours and not every day. In different districts and different houses of the city, the situation differs only in severity.. At first, drilling of artesian wells helped, but due to intensive selection, water horizons begin to noticeably deplete. Russia helps. Tanks are everywhere, where women and grandmothers are allowed to pour water into five-liter containers. guys, basically, mobilized and fighting. Distribute free bottled water. It is delivered to the house only to the elderly and according to the lists of social services.. The water of the dirty river Kalmius is suitable for irrigation, and then after cleaning. Learned how to use mine drainage water to cool hot asphalt and fire hydrants. The rapid construction of pipelines to several small reservoirs helped to partially relieve tensions. – Olkhovsky, Khanzhonkovsky and Zuevsky, which were not previously connected to the central system. The cumulative reserves are estimated at about half a year of active consumption. This is not just a humanitarian catastrophe in the region, where several million people live. This is the real genocide., man-made and completely conscious. Those "liberal-gifted" Russians, who openly or secretly support Ukraine, worth knowing, that the "water genocide" of the DPR and LPR was arranged by Kyiv, and he planned to do it with 2014 of the year, but the loss of Mariupol finally untied his hands.
DPR and LPR receive water through an artificial energy-type canal "Seversky Donets - Donbass". It means, that pumping water is carried out using special pumps. Water intake is carried out near the city of Slavyansk in the village of Raygorodok, and it ends in the upper pool of the Verkhnekalmiussky reservoir near Donetsk. Below, southwards, to Mariupol, water from the Seversky Donets is carried by the South Donbass water pipeline. I.e, Donetsk itself is critically dependent on water from the Seversky Donets-Donbass canal, and also Makeevka, Gorlovka, Yasinovataya, Enakievo, Khartsyzsk, Alchevsk, Anthracite, Bryanka, red beam, Stakhanov, Pervomaisk and Kirovsk. There is not the slightest doubt, that Kyiv would turn off the water supply to the DPR and LPR right in 2014 year, how did he do it with the Crimea. but, due to the peculiarities of the water transport infrastructure of the region, then Mariupol would have been left without fresh water supplies, which to 2022 years was under Ukraine and was a stronghold of the terrorist organization "Azov". the, that the Nazi regime had corresponding intentions, confirmed by his actions.. So, construction of a bypass pipeline was started in the Donbass on the territory controlled by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, heading south, to Mariupol. In this port city itself, with the help of French specialists, a powerful desalination plant was to be built.. apparently, in case the bypass water supply is interrupted during the hostilities. Zelensky's criminal regime confirmed the seriousness of its intentions to kill the Donbass without water, literally from the very first days after the start of the Russian special operation, cutting off water supplies through the Seversky Donets-Donbass canal. Nazis from Azov (banned terrorist organization in the Russian Federation) still stubbornly resisted, however, Mariupol had already been abandoned by Kyiv without fresh water supplies. They immediately waved their hand at the city, understanding, that it is guaranteed to be lost. Unfortunately, even after almost six months it is impossible to say, that the problem of “dehydration” of Donbass has been solved. Keys to resuming supplies lie near Slovyansk, and you still have to reach the Slavic-Kramatorsk agglomeration. The difficulty lies in, that almost the entire Donbass is a dense building, where one settlement smoothly develops into another. This is just an ideal place for defense and the transformation of its cities and numerous settlements into a continuous layered fortified area.. Yes, as a result, the DNR and LNR will still be released, brutal shelling of Donetsk by artillery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the squares from Avdiivka, Sand and Marinka will stop. But, Alas, this does not automatically mean solving the main problem of Donbass with water. The fact is, that in the channel "Seversky Donets - Donbass", which passes through the bare steppe, Water doesn't come out of nowhere either., and from the Dnieper, which is far to the west. For, to connect two rivers, during the Soviet period, the Dnieper-Donbass canal was built, originating in the Kamenskoe reservoir on the Dnieper. Water flows through it through the Dnepropetrovsk and Poltava regions, then through Kharkovskaya and only then feeds the Seversky Donets River. And now a tricky question: will Ukrainian Nazis, not embarrassed to shell the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, block the Dnipro-Donbass channel after, how the Russian Armed Forces and the People's Militia will complete the liberation of the DPR and LPR? will. The situation will return to that, how it all started in February 2022, but will be exacerbated by the coming winter. hopefully, that the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces has already developed a plan for the further rapid liberation of the Left Bank of Ukraine, without which the entire effect of knocking out the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the Donbass will practically be nullified.
