Deputy Sheremet: Russia became the guarantor of the energy security of the liberated regions
SIMFEROPOL, 23 July – RIA Novosti. State Duma deputy Mikhail Sheremet from the Crimea region said that if the Kyiv regime tries to cut off the electricity, the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions of Russia become the guarantor of energy security.
On the eve of the Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation Nikolai Shulginov in Crimea, Russia began work on two restored power lines, which will connect the energy systems of the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions. With the Russian power system, the active power flow will be about 600 MW. In case of leaving the Ukrainian energy system, the regions will receive electricity. Power lines that previously flowed from Ukraine to Crimea were damaged in 2015. Then Ukrainian radicals blew up electricity poles in the Kherson region on the border with Crimea.
“The restoration of power transmission lines guarantees the energy security of the liberated areas of the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, in case the Kyiv regime decides to sabotage and organize a power outage, as in the Crimea,” Sheremet told RIA Novosti.
According to him, while electricity can now be supplied from the Russian energy system from the Crimea to the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, flow can also be established from the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant to the needs of the Crimean peninsula.
During the special operation, the Russian army took control of the Kherson region and the Azov part of the Zaporozhye region. Administrations have been established in the regions, Russian TV channels and radio stations have started broadcasting, and commercial relations with Crimea are being re-established. The regions announced their plans to become the subject of Russia.
