MOSCOW, November 12 /TASS/. All halts of Russian electric energy supplies to Ukraine have been planned. Ukraine imports electric energy as and when necessary. Electric energy supplies to Crimea also take place under a contract, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said in an interview with the Rossiya 24 TV news channel on Thursday.
"Electric energy is being delivered to Crimea according to applications. We do not see any great problems here because the Russian side pays for necessary delivery volumes. The contract is valid," the minister said.
"As for energy supplies to Ukraine, the contract will be valid until year’s end. Deliveries for Ukraine’s energy system are made as and when necessary… The Ukrainian side has applied for energy supplies from November 1 to 12. The Russian side is ready to make the deliveries in accordance with the contract as the need arises. These are normal relations to the extent, which is required. It is impossible to say that someone has halted the delivery or anything else has happened," Novak explained.
Ukraine’s Ukrenergo Company said earlier on Thursday that it would stop electric energy imports from Russia on November 13.
Ukrainian politicians have been constantly raising the question of halting electric energy supplies to Crimea. Refat Chubarov, an organizer of the peninsula’s food blockade, has asked the Ukrainian government to cut off all energy supplies to Crimea. More than 25,000 people voted for a petition demanding that Ukraine stop supplying Crimea with electric energy. Ukraine’s presidential administration is going to consider the petition that was published at the Ukrainian president’s website.
