For the last two days, the Interior Ministry has been negotiating extensively with the Mejlis representatives over the situation with Crimea’s blockade. The situation cannot be called a stable one,” said Arsen Avakov, Ukraine’s Interior Minister, at a November 23 meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers.

The Interior Ministry insists that only one power line supplying electricity en route Kakhovka-Titan can be repaired at the moment. Steps should also be taken to prevent damage to other lines caused by further explosions and acts of sabotage. Avakov went on to say that police have been tipped off to the possibility of such incidents taking place.

According to Avakov, the Government and Security Council should respond to an embargo Russia has been threatening to impose on Ukrainian goods by putting a stop to power and commodity supplies to Crimea.

“This is not about damaged power lines which need to be repaired. It is all a matter of the position we take, – отметил глава МВД Украины.
