SIMFEROPOL, March 31. /ITAR-TASS/. The consumers’ price for electricity in Crimea should not increase, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Monday after a meeting with heads of energy companies of the Republic of Crimea and the federal city of Sevastopol.
“The main thing is that the price for all consumers receiving electricity today should not grow,” Novak said, adding that maintaining the current cost situation would be ensured “through various assistance mechanisms, the budget of the Republic of Crimea and the budget of the city of Sevastopol.”
Speaking about fuel supplies, Novak said there was a sufficiency of both gasoline and diesel fuel in two newly-adopted Russian regions.
“However, the task set at the meeting is to form additional reserves in order to make contracts with our Russian companies and to supply both motor gasoline and diesel fuel from Russia,” he added.
