A huge screen broadcasting Vladimir Putin's address to the Federal Assembly was mounted to the wall of the Crimean State Academic Musical Theatre building on Lenin Square in Simferopol.

The similar screen was mounted to the facade of the Simferopol City Administration building. Curious people, civil servants and journalists gathered in front of the screens under the supervision of police officers and special purpose police unit. 

In his speech to the Federal Assembly, Russian President made tough statements to the leadership of Turkey.  

“We do not intend and will not rattle the saber. But if anyone thinks that by committing the awful war crime – the murder of our people – they are going to get away with some measures concerning their tomatoes or some limits on construction and other sectors, they are sadly mistaken. They will more than once regret what they have done. We know what to do,” Putin has threatened the Turkish authorities. 

Just a reminder: Putin arrived in Crimea to officially launch the first line of the energy bridge on December 2, 2015. The event was held in the building of Krymenergo enterprise.

Putin believes that the second circuit of energy bridge to Crimea will be launched by December 15, which will provide Crimea with 400 MW of energy. Moreover, he said that gas will be supplied to Crimea from the Caucasus in 2017. 

“We will provide gas supplies to Crimea from the Caucasus in 2017, and a thermal power plant is to be built by that time, in late 2017.” said Putin.
