MOSCOW, December 1. /TASS/. The problem of power supply to Crimea will be fundamentally solved in the nearest future, Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday.
"We will solve the electricity problem existing in Crimea as soon as possible. It will be solved in such way so that not to return to it any more. It will be settled fundamentally", the prime minister said.
Crimean residents are now living in challenging conditions, Medvedev added. He thanked them for decent behavior in conditions of complications "forced upon us."
Crimea is suffering from electricity shortage after Ukraine stopped delivering electric power on November 22 because of explosions on its power transmission lines.
Crimea is currently provided with power by 60%, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak said earlier on Monday. "We managed to increase the amount of supplied energy from 380 to 600 MW a day this week on account of alternative sources other than through Ukraine. This amounts to approximately 60% of total electric power consumption in Crimea," Kozak said.
