Crimea suffers total power blackout after power station shuts down
MOSCOW - Reuters
Crimea suffered a total power blackout on June 13 after an incident at a Russian power station, the local government and the Russian Ministry of Energy said.
Sergei Aksyonov, Crimea’s prime minister, said on social media that the power cut had been caused by a surge in electricity at a power station in Taman in southern Russia which had triggered an automatic shutdown.
He said power would be restored within three hours.
