SEVASTOPOL, December 29 /TASS/. People in the federal city of Sevastopol will be able to see the New Year address by Russian President Vladimir Putin on December 31 on a huge screen installed on a square in the city center even if the whole city was left without electricity, Governor Sergey Menyailo told journalists on Monday.
“The Nakhimov Square and institutions hosting New Year events have been equipped with reserve power supply equipment. In addition to that, cinema houses have purchased their own generators. Besdies, we have 25 kW mobile electric power stations, which can be delivered at the first call,” Menyailo went on to say.
The Sevastopol governor has ordered to stick to the schedule of rolling power blackouts in residential neighborhoods during the New Year holidays, although that would not be easy.
Ukraine cut off electricity supplies to Crimea several times last week forcing the authorities to resort to emergency power cuts in the peninsula’s territory.
