Rotating power shutoffs start in Armenia

Rotating power shutoffs started in Armenia due to a deficit of generating capacities as a result of discontinued supplies of natural gas to the republic, the Arminfo news agency reported referring to the press service of the Armenian Electricity Networks. Starting today, electricity will be shut down for four hours a day in Armenia.

The press service reported that uninterrupted electrical supplies would be provided only to strategically important facilities, such as hospitals and the Yerevan underground. The electricity shutdowns will continue for at least three days.

According to earlier reports, on January 23 Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered Gazprom head Alexey Miller to repair the pipeline in North Ossetia, which is used for natural gas supplies to Armenia, over the next 24 hours.
