MOSCOW, December 24. /TASS/. International airport in Crimea’s capital Simferopol is functioning as normal in spite of restrictions on supplies of electricity to peninsular republic from neighboring Ukraine, the Russian Ministry of Energy said in a report on Wednesday.
The report also said that electricity supplies to all the customers in the Republic of Crimea had been resumed at 14:47 Moscow Standard Time.
“Coordinating the situation is a regional staff for ensuring electricity supplies,” it said. “Senior officials of the Ministry of Energy are keeping personal control over the resumption of power supplies in Crimea.”
Operator company of Ukrainian power grids explained for the blackout of the Crimean peninsula by a shortage of electricity in the grids on the Ukrainian territory.
Earlier on the same day, Sergei 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 hours Moscow Standard Time /08:00 hours 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 hours, the Crimean authorities introduced a schedule of sectoral outages of electricity.
The Crimean branch of the federal Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defence set up a special inter-departmental staff to monitor and regulate the situation.
Crimean President Sergei Aksyonov described the actions of the Ukrainian side as “the enemy’s subversion.”.
