Power Goes Out Across All Of Crimea: Entire Peninsula Loses Electricity

According to Reuters and local news agency Kryminform, on Wednesday the entire peninsula of Crimea lost power around 3:25 p.m., local time.

“All Crimea and Sevastopol are without power. It's down everywhere. We're looking into the cause,” a source told the website. Locals have also reported problems with mobile phone service.

  • HEAD OF CRIMEA CONFIRMS POWER BLACKOUT ON THE WHOLE TERRITORY OF CRIMEA

As Meduza.io reports, Kubanenergo (the Kuban Power and Electrification Open Joint Stock Company) confirmed a large-scale “technical shutdown” of the power line that feeds electricity to the Crimean peninsula, telling Kryminform that it expects to fix the issue within two hours.

But before speculation builds that this is some US government black hat hacker launching a cyber war against Ukraine Russia, Tass cites a source in Russia's emergency management service who said that the reason for the power outage is an accident at the “Taman” substation in the Krasnodar Territory. Google translated:

The reason for the power outage on the Crimean peninsula was an accident at the substation "Taman" in the Krasnodar Territory. A source in emergency services told Tass.

"According to preliminary data, because of the accident at the substation" Taman ", located in the Krasnodar Territory, the power supply on the Crimean peninsula was violated," the source said.

Correspondents Kryminform reported that in the center of Simferopol trolley buses stopped, traffic lights did not work, lifts were disconnected in apartment houses. Government buildings, bank branches, some stores are connected to backup power sources.

In the Kubanenergo electric grid company, Kryminform was informed of a large-scale shutdown of the line supplying electricity to the Crimean peninsula. And information about the disconnection of the entire territory of the peninsula from energy conservation Kryminformug was also confirmed by two sources in the enterprises of the telecommunications sphere in the Crimea.

That said, with the World Cup starting in Russia tomorrow, and with 2 World Cup stadiums near by Crimea - in Rostov-on-Don and in Sochi, a lightbulb has just gone off above the Pentagon's head.

This looks like another stunt by the Langley screwballs.

It is hard to believe that the entire peninsula and everything on it is dependent on one power source.

Also strange that there is no backup, and if so how did it also get knocked out.

Langley is up to their psychopathic games again. 

If a lightbulb went off over the Pentagram it's only because the Langley psychos got there first.

The Ruskies had better check every inch of that power station before they give clearance to resume.

Langley would not have pulled off a stunt like this for show -- it is only the first phase of something else in the works.

If all this chatter about aliens pans out to be true maybe we can give them all of the DC Swamp and its environs as Danegeld and let them have it all.

Although it would be a shame to loose all the museums.

WWIII

 

This was likely Ukrainian partisans being funded by either Soros or someone in the US intelligence community.

Willing to bet it was a little of all of those. This was done last year, most likely as a trial run to make sure it could be done.

Boris Mexican stick welding wife's tractor frame with plastic bucket and salt water.  Unlike western girlyman tractors, 1952 Soviet BYK steal is thick, and so Boris jumper cabled to transformer substation behind wife's pig barn.  Now waiting for power to finish.

Much ado about nothing. Every time there is a bad thunderstorm here my power goes out for 2-4 hours. Investing in a whole house nat gas generator.

I was lucky enough to get one of those excellent chinese single cylinder diesel engines before the EPA banned them. Built a frame and linked it to a 7.5 kW generator head just in time for hurricane Ike. Linked it to the breaker panel via a manual transfer switch.

The wife didn't think much of it when I was making it but she loves it now.
