KIEV, December 6. /TASS/. Activists of the energy blockade of Crimea have decided to unblock the electricity transmission line that was repaired after the November 22 incident, Refat Chubarov, a member of Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada (parliament) and one of the organizers of the food and energy blockade of Crimea, said on Sunday.
"Activists of the blockade have arrived at a position that electricity supplies along the Kakhovka-Titan line can be resumed," he said.
He said the decision had been taken after consultations with the Ukrainian president and prime minister. "Yesterday, we had a long consultation with the president. Before that we had spoken with the prime minister. We, the blockade activists, can see the following compromise in this situation: only one line - Kakhovka-Titan - may be re-commissioned with our consent," he said.
The Kakhovka-Titan line’s capacity is 220-250 megawatt.
Electricity supplies to Crimea from Ukraine’s Kherson region were interrupted on November 22 when Ukrainian radicals blew up transmission pylons at all the four electricity transmission lines. Ever since one of the damaged lines - Kakhovka-Titan - was restored, energy blockade activists have been blocking its use.
