MOSCOW, December 30 /TASS/. There will be no more power blackouts in Crimea this or next year, Sergey Aksyonov, the head of the Republic of Crimea, said on Tuesday commenting the signing of contracts for electric energy supplies between Russia and Ukraine. “There will be no power cuts this or next year. I am sure we are going to solve all problems linked to Crimea’s supplies with electric energy in 2015. We are fulfilling the assigned tasks in full measure,” Aksyonov stressed.
Earlier on Tuesday, Russia and Ukraine signed two contracts for delivery of electric energy from Russia to Ukraine, the Russian Energy Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.
