Unidentified saboteurs attempted to disrupt power supply to occupied Crimea by blowing up two transmission towers. According to the blockade organizers, the situation on the blast site is currently calm and under control.

“All explosive materials on the blast site have been cleared, so there is no danger now. The transmission towers have been partially damaged but are still standing. There are no explosives left on the site and no electricity is being supplied,” Islyamov said.

Earlier, saboteurs attempted, unsuccessfully, to topple other transmission towers in the same area. According to Islyamov, there is currently no danger on the site.

“Three of the four power lines supplying power to Crimea are damaged. The only power line remaining intact now is the Armyansk one,” said Lenur Islyamov.
