Yesterday, long lines for bread were observed in Sevastopol. People keep buying bread as worried that power outages will cause supply problems.

Because of halted power supplies to Crimea, people have no heating, the fridges in the apartments and grocery stores are defrosting, the Internet connection and mobile phones are working badly, in some areas the water is cut off.

The blowing up of transmission power lines, which supplied electricity to the Russia-occupied peninsula, has caused a power cutoff and triggered a collapse: long lines at the electrified gas stations, some supermarkets are closed, local residents are snapping up candles and lanterns.
