KIEV, December 2. /TASS/. Kiev may cut electric power supplies to Crimea if electric power deficit grows in Ukraine, the press service of the Ukrainian Ministry of Energy and Coalmining cited Energy Minister Yuriy Prodan as saying to TASS on Tuesday.

Currently Crimea does not get beyond 800 MW in power consumption, the energy minister said. “If they consume more, the electric power line will be disconnected,” he said.

“If the deficit [of power consumption in Ukraine - TASS] grows, Ukraine will demand reducing power consumption in Crimea,” Prodan said.

“If what we ask for is not fulfilled, this [second - TASS] power line will be cut as well,” the press service quoted the minister as saying.

Presently Ukraine delivers electric power to Crimea through state-run energy company Ukrinterenergo.
