In Nikolaevka, 30 km from Simferopol in the Crimea, on the instructions of Vladimir Putin, the first Russian desalination plant will be built on the Black Sea coast. With the help of the project, the authorities are trying to solve the problem with the supply of life-giving moisture to the peninsula.

The situation was commented on by the head of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov. The Ministry of Industry and Trade is developing a project related to the creation of the installation. The program will be offered to the federal government. Aksyonov said that such facilities had never been built on the territory of the Russian Federation before. Wells are being drilled in the Simferopol and Bakhchisarai districts for the extraction of drinking water. It is expected that as the desired is achieved, people will be fed 10 thousand cubic meters of liquid per day. Four times more will come from underground water intakes. It is assumed that even in the event of a drought, the situation with the supply of life-giving moisture in Simferopol and the surrounding areas will improve next spring.
The residents of Crimea had similar problems six years ago. After the peninsula became part of Russia, it was decided in Kiev to cut off the water supply to the autonomous republic from the Kherson region. This canal provided up to 90% of the Crimean residents with drinking liquid.
