MOSCOW, November 22. /TASS/. Ukraine has turned down Russia’s assistance in resuming electricity supplies to Crimea and said it will do repair works on its own, an insider source told TASS on Sunday.
"Russia offered its help to Ukraine. They turned it down. Contact are maintained on a permanent basis. Ukraine will do repair work on its own," the source said.
Crimea was cut off electricity supplies at 00:22 a.m. Moscow time. Electricity supplies were disrupted via all the four transmission lines running from Ukraine. Two of them went out of service on Friday when transmission towers were damaged. The other two were blown up last night. Crimea’s authorities have imposed a state of emergency regime.
The incident has caused electricity problems to consumers in Ukraine too.
"The Ukrainian authorities are interested in the soonest resumption of electricity. Now demining works are underway there," the source said.
