Ukraine Temporarily Cuts Off Crimea's Electricity Amid Power Crisis

Ukraine temporarily cut off power supplies to Crimea.

KIEV — Ukraine temporarily cut off power supplies to Crimea on Wednesday after the Russian-controlled peninsula failed to curb consumption as required due to a power crisis, the Ukrainian Energy Ministry said.

"Today electricity supplies to Crimea were shut off … just as would be done to any region of Ukraine," a ministry representative told Reuters by phone. "Supplies will be restored as soon as they implement the set consumption regime."

Energy Minister Volodymyr Demchyshyn subsequently told a government meeting that supplies had resumed to Crimea, which was annexed by Russia in March, but still depends on Ukraine for power supplies.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
