Germany Condemns Ukraine's Blackout of Crimea as Criminal

Germany’s foreign ministry said that it considers the blackout of Crimea by extremist groups a criminal act.

The blackout in Russia’s Crimea peninsula is a criminal act that must be investigated, a German Foreign Ministry spokesman said Monday.

The Crimean blackout began on Sunday, after Ukrainian extremist groups blew up power line pylons on the Ukrainian side of the border. The Ukrainian power utility has thus far been unable to repair the pylons, as extremists maintain access to the site and local police have not been able to gain access.

Around 2.5 million residents of Crimea have been left with no constant electricity supply as a result.

“Attacks on Ukraine’s public infrastructure, including that providing Crimea with electricity, are criminal acts. We expect them to be perceived as such and investigated by Ukrainian officials,” Martin Schaefer said.

The spokesman added that Berlin expected power to be quickly restored in the Black Sea peninsula.

German media also criticized the attacks, with Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung commentator Reinhard Veser writing that the attacks show criminal negligence toward the peninsula’s residents, which could also lead to tensions between Ukraine and Russia.

Ukrainian energy utility Ukrenergo previously said that the power line downing caused considerable difficulties, including the forced shut-off of several power stations. The utility warned that shutoffs at nuclear reactors in the area could lead to accidents.

    Why should Ukraine give electricity to a russian-occupied territory? I don’t get it..

    • Lone Ranger

      Its not Russian occupied, its Russian.
      Maybe because they pay for it aside from that they deliver Ukraine with oil and gas and Ukraine is around $8billion in debt for their gas and another $3bill for state bonds that were bought by Russia.
