Russia may cut supplies of electric power to Ukraine

The Russian authorities may limit supplies of electricity to regions of Ukraine, should ongoing disruptions in supplies of electricity in the Crimea continue, said Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

"Separate parts of Ukraine are energy deficient and they receive electricity from Russia. Whoever takes not very smart decisions to restrict supplies of electricity to the Crimea should understand that symmetrical measures are possible,"  Medvedev said in an interview with the Vedomosti newspaper.

On September 3, Ukrinterenergo limited supplies of electricity to the Crimea because of the shortage of fuel in regions of Ukraine. Limits on the power flow from the power system of Ukraine to the Crimea vary depending on time of the day. Should Crimean consumers fail to comply with the limits, Ukrinterenergo warned of possible total shutdown of the peninsula from the Ukrainian system of electricity supplies, Rosbalt said.
