As reported by Censor.NET citing LІGA, leader of the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev said in an interview.
He meant the lines supplying electricity to some areas of the Kherson region and the line connected to the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant: "We will allow a few engineers to demine and repair work. There's a line that skirts Crimea and powers some areas in the Kherson region. The people who live there are also facing a blackout. This is the line we will allow mending. No one should experience any difficulties in the mainland. One more line is connected with the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant [as reported by the national energy supplier Ukrenerho, the collapse of power line pylons led to the load shedding at two NPPs - ed.]."
Dzhemilev said that negotiations on the resumption of electricity supply to Crimea are possible after the liberation of Ukrainian political prisoners in the occupied peninsula and in Russia.
The leader of the Crimean Tatar people also suggested that in response to the energy blockade of Crimea, Russia may introduce the next package of trade restrictions.
"They've already stopped shipping the coal. It will be more expensive, but we still can buy it in South Africa. A little bit expensive, of course. But we gradually have to adapt and break off ties with Russia. Our oligarchs and politicians whose business is tied with Russia will resist it a great deal," Dzhemilev said.
