Crimean businessmen found the way to compensate for losses due to the blackout: they have raised prices for generators without which Crimeans already cannot imagine their existence. The price for gasoline generators on the peninsula varies from RUB 22 to 30 thousand, depending on the capacity, reported the Crimean News.

Entrepreneurs admit the financial benefit from selling the generators is enormous. At a rough estimate, only over the past week the dealers have made millions of rubles.

It is not surprising that hoping to make a scoop Russians, supplying the light sources to the peninsula, have also raised price for generators - and these are "citizens" whom Crimeans, fearing "Bandera’s followers, call their ''fellow one's''.
