MOSCOW, December 25. /TASS/. All the works for the restoration of electric power supply to Crimea have been carried out and further power outages are hardly possible in the near term, Russian Minister for Crimean Affairs Oleg Savelyev told reporters on Thursday.
“To date, the works for the restoration of electricity supply, as far as I understand, have been practically completed. I think we will not face outages any time soon,” he said.
According to the minister, the energy system of the Crimean Republic will become fully independent by late 2017 thanks to measures implemented within the framework of Russia’s federal target program for the development of Crimea.
