SIMFEROPOL, December 31. /TASS/. Head of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov has called the termination of power supplies from Ukraine to the peninsula on the night to December 31 a "terrorist act".
"Today a terrorist act has been committed, one of the supports has been undermined or tumbled down. The media already reported that Energy Minister Novak said that Ukraine wants to bring into the contract a clause stating that Crimea is the Ukrainian territory. My stance is clear. They can get out of here with such suggestions. I consider it unacceptable to be on the hook of blackmailers and terrorists who lie to people saying that Crimea will return to Ukraine. This will never happen. We want to intimidate us, to force them to love them. They won’t get it,"- Aksenov told reporters.
"The fact that one of the supports has been tumbled down. How they did it - I do not know - sawed it with a jigsaw or blew it up, I do not know. Everyone has his own views on such attacks," - Aksenov said.
"Russia used to go through stronger difficulties. Crimean residents had a good experience. I personally believe that all services will fulfill the task of the president and by May 1, Crimea will receive required electricity in full volume," - the head of Crimea said.
