SIMFEROPOL, November 29. /TASS/. The so-called ‘energy bridge" from Russia’s southern Krasnodar Territory to Crimea that has been cut off electricity supplies from Ukraine will be commissioned before December 20, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Sunday.
"We have a deadline on December 20. We are doing our best to commission it earlier than that date. I would not now say when exactly. If we succeed, we will do it earlier and you will know then," he said after a meeting at the Crimean government.
Crimea’s energy specialists finished preparations of the infrastructure for the launch of the electricity supplies lines to Crimea from the Krasnodar Territory on November 28. The so-called ‘energy bridge’ will run across the bottom of the Kerch Strait. When it is commissioned, Crimea’s energy system will be independent from Ukraine.
Electricity supplies to Crimea were stopped overnight to November 22 after unidentified people blew up transmission towers at the electricity lines running from Ukraine. Crimea’s energy system is currently functioning in an isolated regime with periodical rolling outages. Social facilities have been switched to autonomous energy sources.
