Today, Dec 8, at 06.00 p.m. an indefinite rally against the power supply to the Russia-occupied Crimea is to start outside the Presidential Administration, reported on her Facebook page a Crimean Tatar activist Gayde Rizaeva who is participating in Crimean blockade and is in charge of the "Kalanchak” checkpoint.

- We are just people, Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar. We are apolitical and guided by inner convictions of our conscience and honor. We are those who cannot be bribed. We are those feeling the pain of loss in our souls, those who have not changed their mind, wrote Rizaeva.

She stressed she would not allow to call her nation traitors for the second time.

Last night "Kakhovskaya - Titan" power line was energized and currently Crimea gets limited power supply.
