UNITED NATIONS, December 24. /TASS/. United Nations does not have information on electricity outages in Crimea but it calls on all the parties concerned to focus on positive steps and on political settlement of the situation, Stephane Dujarric, the official spokesperson for the UN Secretary General said on Wednesday while answering a question by TASS.
Earlier the same day, Sergey Yegorov, the Minister of Fuel and Energy of the Republic of Crimea told TASS Ukraine had cut the peninsular region off from electricity supplies at 11:00 a.m. Moscow Standard Time (08:00 a.m. GMT). Kiev resumed partial supplies somewhat later but did not raise it higher than 40% of the region’s actual demand for electricity.
As of 19:00 p.m. (16 p.m. GMT), the Crimean authorities introduced a schedule of sectoral outages of electricity.
The Crimean branch of the federal Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense set up a special inter-departmental staff to monitor and regulate the situation.
