As reported, the first object to be visited by the president of the aggressor country is the office of Krymenergo [Crimea's energy supplying company - ed.].
At Simferopol airport, Vladimir Putin was met by Sergey Aksyonov, self-styled head of the occupied peninsula.
As previously stated by Russia's propagandist Dmitry Smirnov, "according to unofficial information, Vladimir Putin will visit Crimea today to witness the test launch of the energy bridge."
As RIA Novosti later reported, Russian President Vladimir Putin took part in the launch of the first circuit of the energy bridge to Crimea.
He stated the peninsula would be supplied with gas from the Caucasus.
Putin also said the second circuit would be launched on Dec. 15.
He noted that over 100 km of high-voltage power lines had been constructed for Crimea's needs.
