The water supply problem in the Republic of Crimea is being alleviated, the Government of Russia informed referring to a statement by Sergey Aksyonov, head of the Republic, during a working trip of Marat Khusnullin, Deputy Prime Minister of Russia, to the republic.

"As for Yalta, for example, we plan to transfer water from waterfalls to reservoirs, a package of measures for Alushta, and, certainly, we will be able to supply the capital of Crimea with water around the clock after the Beshterek-Zuysky water intake facility is launched on a full scale," the head of the republic commented.

According to Marat Khusnullin, the options for water supplies to Crimea under consideration include new water intakes and water extraction from the bottom of the Sea of Azov. The Deputy Prime Minister also set a task of reducing water losses in water supply lines in the republic.
