October 20, 2015. Ukrenergo restored the power supply to Crimea. The company reports that the previously damaged power lines have not been completely disconnected.

Ukrenergo specialists went to the site to asses 
the scope of damages and determine the terms and materials required to restore the supports. 

At 13:42, the Dzhankoy - Melitopol high voltage was temporarily disconnected for removal of detected objects (probably mines) and thorough examination of the surrounding area by representatives of internal affairs agencies. 

Upon completion of these actions, the line was put into operation at 15:55.

Thus, the possibility of restricting energy supply during peak evening hours has been eliminated. Now the power supply to the peninsular is carried out in accordance with the agreed daily schedule, without restrictions.
