Electric power supply to Crimea from Russia via energy bridge over Kerch Strait halted due to accident
The supply of electric power to Crimea via the energy bridge over the Kerch Strait has been halted due to an accident, the region's Energy Minister Vadim Belik said.
"Four lines of the energy bridge are not working at the moment. The reasons are now being determined," Belik told Interfax by phone.
The minister said the supply of electricity to Crimea was halted after an accident warning system went off on the routes leading to the energy bridge over the Kerch Strait on the Krasnodar side of the strait.
There is currently no power supply in central Simferopol. Electric-powered transport and traffic lights are not working in the city.
