 Enterprises stopped, electric transport out of service, fuel and candles in short supply: Crimea's blackout. PHOTOS

Russia-occupied Crimea has been left without power. Electricity is on for several hours daily. Street lights and electric transport is out of service in cities. Internet is operating extremely poorly.

This is reported by blogger Ilya Varlamov in his Livejournal account, Censor.NET informs.

People barely believe in statements by the Ukrainian power companies that electricity will be on in a few days. Citizens are squirreling food supplies, candles, power units, and fuel.

Internet is on in Simferopol's downtown only.

Due to the blackout, foods have started to spoil in stores. The problem is that food supplies have been disrupted, for nothing is imported from the mainland Ukraine, and Russia is not able to reach Crimea through Kerch due to bad weather. Earlier, there were some hopes for Turkey, but yesterday all the contacts with them were halted.

The largest plants of the peninsula have stopped operating. It will definitely cause a shortage in the budget.

Elevators are off in all high-rise buildings to prevent getting stuck.

In Sevastopol, the blogger reports, the situation is much worse: power is supplied for two of every eight hours, Internet is operating poorly. Lines are seen at gas stations. Prices for fuel have been going up. Candles are two and a half times more expensive than they used to be. Accidents at power stations have become more common due to high burden at moments of turning on.

The most valuable thing in Crimea at the moment is a power unit. Having one is a great luck, but it also needs fuel for operating.
