Adviser to the prime minister, Ukrenerho ex-CEO Kostiantyn Ushchapovskyi told Interfax-Ukraine, Censor.NET reports.
"Unfortunately, no objective information on the state of peninsula's power system is now available - Crimea's power engineers yesterday shut off the entire telecommunication system responsible for transmitting data to Ukrenerho controllers," he said.
Ushchapovskyi said that according to unofficial information, around 100 MW of electricity is currently supplied from Russia to Crimea via the energy bridge. "However, this is unofficial information, we don't have reliable data," he said.
The adviser noted the construction of the energy bridge alone was not enough to ensure the supply of big amounts of electricity from Russia and its further distribution throughout Crimea - costly infrastructure projects are yet to be realized.
As reported, yesterday Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the launch of the first circuit of the energy bridge from Russia to occupied Crimea.
