Russian-occupied peninsula remains powerless
Many parts of the Crimean Peninsula remain without power supply with residents of Ukraine’s peninsula affected by days of outage.
Lights went off across Crimea overnight on November 21, after two pylons carrying power lines from Ukraine to the Black Sea peninsula were blown up, plunging almost two million people into darkness.
As many cities including Kerch and Yalta went into the eighth straight day in the dark over the weekend, residents continued to rely on emergency generators and candles for power and light.
Crimean Tatars and activists on the mainland want the Kremlin-installed leaders of occupied Crimea to free political prisoners before turning the power back on.
