Mustafa Dzhemilev said that now Ukraine's authorities have grounds to supply electricity to Crimea.

"The arguments are as follows: we have to supply electricity to Crimea, because in Ukraine's east Russia provides electricity to certain areas in Donetsk and Luhansk regions. I have a question here - is it war we wage or is it trade? What kind of relationship should we have? A criminal agreement was signed, where Crimea is named as the 24th federal region of the Russian Federation. Our official signed this document. It is a matter of prosecution," Dzhemilev said.
