He used water resources to irrigate agricultural land without any permission. This was announced by the so-called head of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of the Crimea, Gennady Narayev, via his Facebook page.

“Water resources were used for irrigation of agricultural land without a decision to provide a water body for use, on the basis of which the right to use a water body arises. These actions are in violation of the requirements of Articles 9 and 11 of the Water Code of the Russian Federation”,- the message says.

It is noted that a protocol on an administrative offense was drawn up against the guilty person under Article 7.6 of the Administrative Offenses Code of the Russian Federation, and a resolution was issued to impose an administrative penalty in the form of a fine in the amount of 2,000 rubles.

“In addition, in accordance with the methodology for calculating the amount of damage caused to water bodies due to violation of water legislation, approved by the order of the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia, the amount of damage caused to a water body will be calculated, and a claim will be made to the guilty person for its compensation”,- Naraev added.
