The Ukrainian foreign Ministry made an official protest to Russia in connection with the visit to Crimea by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who opened the first leg of the power bridge connecting the continental part of the Russian Federation with the Peninsula. Apparently in Kiev decided that the failure of the Peninsula energoblok not respect the rights of the Ukrainian authorities.
The attitude of the Ukrainian authorities to the energy blockade of the Crimea is constantly caused issues. Like, Kiev said had nothing to do with it. With another - almost no actions to investigate the undermining of power transmission line - it can be regarded as an act of terrorism - not to stop the activity so unsafe "activists" official followers of the country did nothing.
Equally unclear is the situation in the media powers - such as they are, taking from under the responsibility of the respective artists undermining, talking about the "unknown", amestecuri the Crimea on the other hand - say about the benefits of such a step for Ukraine and almost fully support such a suspicious from many points of view the decision. The big question still remains - for what purpose this was done.
Anyway, after you open 1 thread energy bridge that connected the Crimea with mainland Russia, participation in the launch which was attended by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, the situation in the region markedly improved. This angered the Ukrainian authorities to such an extent that they sent an official note.
On the website of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine, for example, explains that the Agency "a strong protest" over the visit to the Peninsula domestic favorite. In addition Kiev asked not to do it anymore. However, the process is already irreversible - the dependence of the Crimea from the supply of the result of the turn dropped, and now the Ukrainian authorities have to contend not only with the lack of leverage on the Peninsula, but with the decline in profits by exporting energy.
As we were informed Days.Ru, Russian Peninsula remained without electricity on the night of November 22. This happened in consequence of the undermining of the supports of power transmission lines in 2 directions with Ukraine in the Crimea. 2 days earlier, also were blown up supports 2 different power lines. Immediately after the bombings destroyed were surrounded by militants "Right sector" (organization banned in Russia. - Approx. ed.), as well as activists of the unrecognized Crimean Tatar Mejlis. Repairmen managed to reconstruct 1 support, but the power supply did not resume.
After 10 days the President of Russia Vladimir Putin took part in the opening of 1 filament power bridge to Crimea, which connected the Peninsula with the mainland powers. The leader of the country announced that by mid-December will start the 2nd part of the energy bridge, which will increase its capacity.
