 Energy self-sufficience of occupied Crimea will cost Russia $2 billion

The Russian Vedomosti newspaper informs citing calculations of Renaissance Capital analyst Vladimir Sklyar, Censor.NET reports.

He estimated that the peninsula required 1350 MW for its energy security. The Rostov nuclear power plant will increase generation of energy for this purpose as well as four combined cycle gas turbine units with total capacity of 940 MW will be built on the Taman Peninsula.
