Subscribers of MTS-Ukraine mobile operator report connection failure in Simferopol, while in other regions of Crimea the MTC-Ukraine operates normally.
Other Ukrainian operators, such as ‘Kyivstar’ and ‘Life’ are working as usual.
It comes days after Crimea’s Minister of Communications Dmitry Polonsky said Ukrainian cellular operators were to stop operations in Crimea August 5.
Still, according to MTS office in Simferopol, the reasons of connection failure will be found and the problem will be settled.
It was also noted that the situation was not related to the recent statements of the Crimean authorities that Ukrainian mobile operators would cease their work in Crimea August 5.
“MTS-Ukraine continues its work in Crimea, these are probably some technical problems, that will be found and solved”- representatives of MTS-office in Simferopol said.
Earlier, Crimea’s Minister of Communications Dmitry Polonsky said that Ukrainian cellular operators were to stop operations in Crimea August 5. He said this information had come from “sources in Ukraine’s mobile operators.” He added however he did not know whether “it will be one operator or all of them.”
In turn Kievstar, one of Ukraine’s biggest mobile operators, announced it was not planning to stop operations in Crimea, so did the other operators.
Crimea was annexed by Russian in March, following Crimean referendum on its status.
