Two weeks ago Ukrainian terrorists, mix of Muslims and Right Sector extremists blew up power lines that carried electricity to Crimean peninsula. Meantime same people tried to block Ukraine/Crimean border, stopping commercial traffic from entering the peninsula. Thus, attempting to create food shortage for Crimeans. All this happened while Ukraine remembers an anniversary of what’s called a holodomor which is when Ukrainians and others died of starvation in 1930s. While remembering those who starved to death, Ukrainian nationalists tried to create food shortages in Crimea.
Extremists continue to block electricians from fixing electricity flow to Crimea all while intensifying food blockade to Crimea.

All this has caused Crimeans to once again turn to Russia for protection. Ships full of food, supplies and electrical generators began flowing to Crimea from Russian mainland. At the same time Russian government hired Chinese company to lay electrical cable at the bottom of the sea to carry electricity to Crimea.
Yesterday, president Putin has visited the peninsula to participate in the launch of electrical flow from Russian mainland. First kilowatts of electricity are already flowing to Crimea.
