 Ukraine halves electricity supply to occupied Crimea, - blockade coordinator Isliamov

At the moment, Ukraine supplies 505 MW of electricity to Crimea while the previous average supply amounted to 850-900 MW.

The figures were announced by Crimea's blockade coordinator Lenur Isliamov, Censor.NET reports referring to 5 Channel.

According to Isliamov, occupants were forced to put three power plants into operation in Crimea, which together can provide 250 MW of electricity. At the same time, a single Melitopol-Dzhankoi power line, which is now blocked by the activists, provided 330 MW.

The activists say they are ready to lift the blockade for repair works.

"We have already blocked around 330-350 MW of electricity. That is, Crimea is now lacking this much power. But it does not mean that we are outright barbarians who will not allow their own technicians to fix the wires, of course we will. But we'll make them promise us they will not turn on additional electricity to Crimea via different entry points," Isliamov said.
