Ukrainian MFA commits a "water genocide" against Crimean residents

Disproof

The word genocide is frequently used in pro-Kremlin disinformation https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=genocide&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_language%5B%5D=rus&date= but it seldom corresponds to the actual definition of a genocide http://www.un.org/en/genocideprevention/genocide.html

Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin said that "Ukraine was aware of questionable Russian plans to build a new water supply route and would never allow water supplies to the occupied peninsula under a contract where Crimea was deemed to be part of Russia".
