This has been for a while and there are some water pipes already in construction. Crimea has alternative water supply sources, not enough, but it is not a case when they have no water. Since situation has been like this for a while I don't see it as dire.
it would be interesting to know to what extent the alternative water supply sources can provide Crimea. Considering that about 90% of water use is for farming, but the provision of the 10% of drinking water came first for obvious reasons, if we can verify if drinking water is rationed (even if people is not dieing for thirst), we can then deduce that situation is pretty tragic because that would be mean Crimean farming is colapsing.

A blockade of military ships not a complete blockade as a read it.
It is a escalation nonetheless.
what is a traditional indicator that military action might be imminent.
Russia is closing the strategic Kerch Strait in the Black Sea for warships and state ships

It would be interesting to see how that gets interpreted if we just end up in a standoff here.

Yes We Agree on the facts and it is an escalation but not necessarily a unilateral escalation either.
And what once might have passed as a declaration of war doesn’t mean it still is one.
Financial sanctions are just as much a “blockade” as a physical one.
we’ve been financially blockading nations for decades.

Honestly we have little business sending US military ships into the Sea of Azov “unscheduled”
It’s like 3/4 the size of Lake Michigan and surrounded by Russia or Russian controlled territory.

Oh for sure. That would be ballsy to try and actually run naval ops there. I think the more interesting question is whether they end up letting civilian traffic through or not.

Limited water supply several hours a day. Farming is not that widespread, although it suffered too.

Crimea has just reduced residents' access to fresh water by 50%, from 10 hours per day to 5.
