SIMFEROPOL, December 4. /TASS/. Speaker Vladimir Konstantinov, head of Crimea's parliament, has suggested the name "Generator" for boys born during the peninsula’s power outage.

"Girls are named Sveta [translating as "light" from Russian] but boys are forgotten," the speaker said. "What about naming them Generators?" he asked. "It’s a very good name."

At least four newborn girls were named Sveta in the east Crimean city of Kerch, which suffered most from the power cut-off. Crimea remained without power from Ukraine for some 10 days, with portable generators offering the main source of supply for the peninsula’s two million population.

President Vladimir Putin arrived in Crimea’s capital, Simferopol, on December 2 to launch the first line of a power bridge from mainland Russia.

Four transmission lines were supplying Crimea with electric power from Ukraine until November 20, when two pylons were blown up and a state of emergency declared. In the early hours of November 22, another two pylons were attacked.
