Today, on December 15, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has inaugurated the second line of the power bridge from Krasnodar Territory to Crimea.

He told to start power supply via the second route during a video conference with Crimea.

Putin also told to ensure launch of two more power lines to the peninsula in April-May which will total the energy supply to Crimea to 800 megawatts. Earlier, he claimed that by next summer Crimea could receive the whole amount of power it had received from Ukraine.

As EADaily reported earlier, on November 22, Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar extreme nationalists blew up electricity pylons and put Crimea into energy blockade with the connivance of official Kiev. Crimea remained in a blackout within a week and a half.

On December 3, ahead of schedule, the first power line was inaugurated from Russia. The peninsula is getting only half of the power it needs now. By Dec 9, all facilities providing central heating to residential buildings and socially important institutions were in operation.
