    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.


    As 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.

    Was it an accident or an "accident"?

    The prime minister of the region, which Russia annexed from Ukraine in 2014, said the power outage had been caused by a surge in electricity at a power station in Taman, southern Russia, triggering an automatic shutdown.

    On Wednesday, PM Sergei Aksyonov, said on social media that the power would be restored within three hours.

    Russian state power grid company Rosseti later confirmed power had been restored after a total blackout. The firm said it needed "just over an hour" to restore power to the Black Sea region.
    The newspaper said the Russian government had started enforcing temporary blackouts last year to prevent overloading the energy supply system, leaving thousands without air conditioning.
