KIEV, December 30. /TASS/. The Ukrainian government has allowed state company Ukrinterenergo to sell electric power to Crimea, according to a government ruling released on Tuesday.
The company will sell electric power purchased on the wholesale market on conditions agreed with the Energy and Coal Industry Ministry.
Crimea, which is 70% dependent on power supplies from Ukraine, is now suffering from power supply disruptions due to production deficit in Ukraine, caused by a lack of coal of necessary brands. Last week, Ukraine ceased power supplies to Crimea twice without any notifications.
Late on December 26, Moscow and Kiev signed a contract on supplies of 9 billion kilowatt-hours of electric power to Ukraine, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak said earlier.
