SIMFEROPOL, March 14, /ITAR-TASS/. Crimea is prepared for the possibility its energy supply system may be disconnected from that of Ukraine on orders from the authorities in Kiev, Crimea’s First Deputy PM Rustam Temirgaliyev has said on his page in Facebook on Thursday.
“In case of Kiev’s inadequate reaction and the peninsula’s disconnection from the energy system we have been making preparations to guarantee independent power supply for crucial life support infrastructures,” he said.
Earlier, Temirgaliyev said the authorities in Crimea had deployed about 200 diesel generators to provide enough energy for social infrastructures and polling stations in case of power outages. Crimea is holding a referendum on March 16.
Temirgaliyev said that the authorities in Kiev had formal reasons for cutting power supply, because Crimea had no outstanding electricity debts.
