SIMFEROPOL, November 27. /TASS/. Head of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov expects the power bridge from Krasnodar Region will start operating already on December 5-6. The official made this statement on Friday after the emergency response staff meeting.
"The situation will change after [December] 5-6, as soon as the power bridge goes live, but we do not put the date firm. The deadline is by [December] 22 but I hope everything will be earlier," Aksyonov said.
Authorities are currently considering several options of energizing boiler houses, Aksenov said. These may be connected to diesel generators or using "the general loop". The second option implies growth of energy generation, particularly on account of power bridge commissioning.
Earlier this week Russia’s Energy Minister Alexander Novak said that the first stage of the power bridge from Krasnodar Region to Crimea will be commissioned by December 20.
Crimea was left without electricity supplies at night of November 22 after Ukraine stopped delivering electric power because of explosions on its power transmission lines.
