"The EU-backed government continues to work together with extreme right wing forces: this weekend Crimea was paralyzed by several attacks on its power lines," writes the newspaper, which linked the attacks to the decision of the Kiev government on Monday to blockade the movement of goods in and out of Crimea.
The attacks on the power lines were carried out by extremist groups in the Ukrainian region of Kherson, which is controlled by Kiev, and so far the perpetrators have not been apprehended by the authorities there.
They occurred after some Ukrainian politicians, including members of Petro Poroshenko's political party, called for the Ukrainian authorities to cut off the power supply to Crimea.
"The idea that you should throw a criminal in jail does not occur to the government in Kiev," remarks DWN.
"In the end, it goes against Moscow – and here different rules apply."

"Germany has called on Ukraine to investigate the attack. The government expects that the power supply be restored, and that such attacks are not repeated, said a Foreign Ministry spokesman. The political conflict must not be played out at the expense of the people of Crimea," wrote DWN.
"But that is also only thunder for the theater: the conflict, of course, has been played out at the expense of the people of Crimea and Donbass for months."
"The current boycott (of Crimea) complements the boycott which the government of Ukraine has burdened its own citizens in Donbass with. They can only survive because they have been receiving humanitarian supplies from Russia for months."
"In circumstances when a military conflict has ended and incidents of shelling are isolated, it is incomprehensible why the US Congress has taken the decision to make the delivery of lethal weapons to Ukraine possible. It begs the question, is there a desire to rekindle war and provoke military conflict," said Putin at the G20 summit in Ankara.
