This is announced by the Right Sector organization, Censor.NET reports.
According to the message, this morning Dec. 7 one power supply line was attempted to be launched by repair workers, who arrived at the scene together with representatives of the Interior Ministry and the Security Service of Ukraine. The Right Sector claims this had been agreed upon between some of the blockade organizers and President Poroshenko.
Three operational groups of the sector prevented the launch and did not allow power supply to occupied Crimea to be restored.
"It came as a surprise for soldiers and other activists of the blockade that Mejlis members agreed to restore power supplies to occupied Crimea. We do not understand the stance of the authorities and some of the blockade organizers on economic cooperation and trade with the enemy. These activities are a sell-out of the state interests and a heavy crime in times of war. …
"We declare that if the power supply is restored, the Right Sector will stop participating in the public protest of Crimea blockade, for we see no reason for such 'blockade'," the message reads.
Right Sector soldiers control the situation near the pylons.
The organization also informed that the same attempt to restore power supply via "Kakhovska-Tytan" power line took place last night at 9 p.m. A repair crew of Ukrenerho power supplying company stated that blockade participants and the authorities had agreed on the restoration. The activists denied the access to the pylons, the Right Sector informed.
At the same time, Crimean Tatar reporter Shevket Namatullaiev wrote that Tytan plant does not need electricity from the mainland for its operations. According to him, self-proclaimed "Crimean authorities" stated that the plant could generate power for itself and the city of Armiansk it's located in. He also stated that the plant's top managers promised the occupational authorities of Crimea that the plant will supply its surplus electricity to the city's network.
