Boiler stations in Crimea shut down due to power shortage
In particular regions of the peninsula, temperatures reach under minus 10 degrees Celsius
Boiler stations in certain towns and villages of Crimea are being shut down due to power shortage. Specifically, they are shut down in the area of Kerch and Yevpatoria. That was said at the government meeting led by Sergei Aksenov, self-proclaimed leader of the so-called Republic of Crimea, Krym.Realii reports.
The boiler stations are shut down due to the exceeding of the allowed limits of power.
Freezing temperatures are now sweeping through the peninsula. In particular regions, it is about minus 10 degrees by Celsius. Crimea’s emergency services say the freeze will hold until January 5.
Previously, Russian President Vladimir Putin charged to conduct the “electricity poll” among the residents of Crimea, before signing the contract on power supplies to the peninsula.
Lenur Islyamov, Crimean Tatar activist and leader of the civil blockade of Crimea said earlier that activists will demand to define Crimea as part of Ukraine in the contract.
December 30, an electricity pylon “Kakhovska-Tytan” fell down in Kherson region adjacent to Crimea. As the pylon provided power from the mainland Ukraine to the occupied Crimea, the peninsula once again left without electricity.
