"The blockade is aimed at forcing the Russian authorities to redirect the limited resources from war to people's needs. The energy generated in Crimea is more than enough to supply facilities critical for people including hospitals, schools, kindergartens; so that the people feel comfortable," he said.
According to the leader of the Mejlis, in order to do this it is enough to just stop directing energy to the military bases.
"I saw the report of Yevpatoria "mayor" reading that they have received 11 MW instead of required 14 MW. Five megawatts are consumed by military bases, 0.4 MW - by hospitals, 3.5 MW - by housing and public utilities, and only 1 MW remains for the residents, which is obviously not sufficient. The military consume five megawatts! Russia should set priorities," Chubarov said.
