Russia’s power grid monopoly sends its delegation to far east to tackle energy crisis on-site

A commission, headed by Anatoly Kopsov, deputy chairman of the Board of the Unified Energy Systems of Russia, the country’s electricity monopoly, arrived today in Russia’s far-eastern Primorye Territory where electricity blackouts reached 10-16 hours a day. Earlier, members of the commission had visited Khabarovsk (capital of the Far-Eastern Federal District). In the Primorye Territory, the commission immediately went to the city of Luchegorsk where the territory’s biggest electric power station was located. Frequent disruptions in its operation are blamed on poor preparation for the winter and the lack of fuel.
