The dam on the North Crimean canal will not be built yet - Zelensky
The information spread by the Russian media about the probable completion of the dam on the North Crimean canal within the framework of the state project “Large Construction” is not true - the Ukrainian authorities are not going to do it.
The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said this at the All-Ukrainian Forum “Ukraine 30. Infrastructure” on February 22.
“We will not do it. But it is necessary to read about this, because sometimes they (Russian media - ed.) pitch some good ideas”, - he said.
