 A line supplying electricity to Crimea switched off, - media

The participants of the blockade of the Russian-occupied Crimean peninsula announce switching off Melitopol-Dzhankoi power line.

As Censor.NET reports citing Krym.Realii, according to deputy chief of staff of the civil initiative for Crimea's blockade Izet Hdanov, power suppliers have supported the protesters and switched off Melitopol-Dzhankoi power line.

"Product supplies are banned from the occupied peninsula. The electricity is also a product. According to the UN norms, occupants have to take care of the seized territory. We, for our part, will take efforts to deoccupy it," Hdanov stated.

According to him, a few days ago, some hundred participants of the blockade, including locals, gathered near a power pylon that had been previously damaged in the Kherson region. The power engineers could not proceed with repair works as there were people at the facility.

Hdanov said Oct. 11, a decision was taken to turn off and loop the line.

"It will be a dead-end line, no electricity will go to Crimea. Following the current legislation, we will bring to powers-that-be's knowledge that the supply of electricity to Crimea is at least immoral," he said.

Hdanov noticed that three more lines continue to supply electricity to the territory of the occupied peninsula.

At the same time, Ihor Ladnyi, head of Zaporizhzhya supergrid lines service, said in a commentary he supported Crimea's blockade, "but it must be held in a civilized way."

At the moment, the Ukrainian authorities give no official information on the deenergizing of Crimea.
