MOSCOW (Sputnik) — There are no populated areas in Crimea left without any electricity supply, the Russian Emergencies Ministry said Sunday in a statement.
"As of November 29, there are no populated areas in Crimea where there is no electricity at all," the ministry said in a statement.
The ministry delivered 19 electricity generators to the peninsula in the past 24 hours, and is currently delivering 250 more.
Following the electricity blackout, Crimea declared a state of emergency and switched to locally-based emergency power generation.
Kiev has been unable to repair the towers, as extremists are preventing armed police and company repair trucks from accessing the site.
Earlier this week, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said that Russia could respond to the Crimea blackout by halting coal deliveries to Ukraine.
