 Activists to block restoration of damaged power pylons, - Crimea's blockade coordinator Isliamov

The activists of the civil blockade of the occupied Crimea are set to block the restoration of power pylons supplying electricity to the peninsula, which have been damaged by an explosion.

This was announced by coordinator of the civil blockade of Crimea Lenur Isliamov on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel, Censor.NET reports.

Those responsible for the explosion, he said, have not been identified, despite activists' plans to start a power blockade after the food one. Nobody intended to blow anything up, although there were activists proclaiming more radical steps than that of the organizers.

"People who live in Crimea could actually do that. Besides, we have a country at war, where anything is possible, so it could be done by anyone. Even by those who want to portray our peaceful campaign as more radical and set Ukrainians against us," Isliamov suspects.

"If the pylons are to be repaired, we will block the works without fail," the activist promises at the same time.

He says that one of the pylons still has a mine attached to it, which has been neutralized, and the two blasted poles have to be utilized, with a new pylon to be planted instead. The line has already been switched off, with the representatives of Ukrenergo [national energy supplier - ed.] working at the scene.
