SIMFEROPOL, March 24, /ITAR-TASS/. The supply of electricity has been resumed to the outage-ridden districts of Simferopol, to the Kievsky District of the administrative center of the Republic of Crimea and to the Old City. The outages lasted more than four hours.
Earlier on Monday, Rustam Temirgaliyev, First Vice-Premir of the Republic of Crimea, said Ukraine had cut down by 50 percent the amount of electric power being supplied to Crimea.
Temirgaliyev said the Republic is linked with Ukraine by three high-voltage power transmission lines (LEP-330). "The Ukrainian supplier company UkrEnergo has halved the amount of electric power being supplied via these LEP lines. The Peninsula currently receives 50 percent of the planned amount of electric power," he explained.
Following the power cutdown, the Crimea Power Systems" Company, in accordance with the rules of procedure, carried out a routine rolling cutoffs in the supply of electricity to facilities on the Peninsula.
Temirgaliyev said Crimea had been ready for such a step of Kiev and promptly reacted to the decline in power supply.
