He confirmed that all the natural wealth found on the territory of the republic would be nationalized. As he spoke about the mineral resources, he mentioned the presence of some promising deposits.

He also said with confidence there are no grounds whatsoever for Ukraine to shut the supplies of electricity to the region, since Crimea does not have any debts for it.
However, the local authorities and Russian experts have drawn up an emergency plan for setting up standby generating facilities in Crimea. These standby installations will burn gas and diesel fuel.
