MOSCOW, 5 March. /TASS/. Crimea, the Black Sea peninsula separated from Russia's mainland territory by sea, will start receiving energy from the southern Krasnodar region in early 2016, Minister for Crimea’s Affairs Oleg Savelyev told a meeting at the Federation Council, Russian upper chamber of parliament.
"Now proposals have appeared on a possibility of accelerated construction of a cable duct," he said. "In the first quarter of 2016 we can connect electricity interchanges up to 400-500 MW from the Krasnodar side that is certainly the most important goal."
Savelyev said that developing Crimea’s energy, transport and water supplies are priority tasks for his ministry.
