Good and Bad News: New Power Bridge Links Crimea to Russian Power Grid Ending Blockade; Crimea/Kherson Terror Act Warning

Good news: New Power Bridge Links Crimea to Russian Power Grid, Ending Energy Blockade

On December 2, Putin announced that Crimea was officially linked to the Russian United Power Grid via the newly built Power Bridge from mainland across Kerchensky Strait. First line of the bridge was completed ahead of schedule by Chinese and Russian contractors. The first line of 200 megawatt greatly alleviated the electricity shortage following Ukraine blowing up power lines to Crimea. Second line, adding another 200 megawatt is expected by December 15-20, allowing Crimeans to greet New Year’s in light and warmth. Crimeans are already reporting heat and lights being back.

Three weeks ago, ukro-nazis and Crimean Tartar Mejlis had blown up four strategic long-range transformers in Kherson Oblast, Ukraine, supplying power to Crimea. Details: Ukraine Blows Up Power Lines, Leaving Crimea Without Electricity.

By May 2016 two more lines of the Power Bridge (Rus: EnergoMost) will be built, for the grand total of over 800 megawatt between four lines, surpassing the amount of electric power previously purchased from Ukraine. In 2017-2018 the new power station will also be built, in order to accommodate the needs of Crimea’s growing economy.

The auto-rail multi-directional bridge will also be completed by 2017-18. This will signal the 100% independence of Crimea from the neighboring Ukraine.

Crimeans are rejoicing that life is returning to normal after almost three weeks of energy blockade, and thanking Russia and Putin. More than ever, they also feel that last year they had a lucky escape from Ukraine.

Putin announcing opening of the Power Bridge:


Still, this is bitter-sweet news.

I grew up in those parts; I remember how it used to be. It’s a terrible pity that Ukraine has chosen this kind of confrontational route to nowhere. The Kiev junta, oligarchs, ukro-nazis and Crimean Tartar Mejlis, aided and directed from abroad, are to blame for the unnatural division between people who had always been friends and closest relatives. I feel sorry for the people on both sides: Crimean and Ukrainian. Many have family living on the other side, and many have close friends across the border. All these people are now divided due to hateful Ukrainian propaganda and hideous acts of violent and unscrupulous individuals, supported by greedy foreign interests.

If you recall my predictions, Ukraine will have to hit rock bottom in order for people to truly wake up and start changing the disastrous situation they allowed to fester in their country. Unfortunately, Ukraine still has some way to fall before the bottom can be reached. It will be a tedious next year, and as Ukraine falls, it will attempt to drag Crimea, Russia, Pridnestrovie, Moldova and EU with it. Tension and uncertainty will continue and more problems are expected.

Bad news: Kherson Oblast and Crimea Terrorist Act Warning

One of the problems is the spread of rampaging thugs, violent nazis, together with extremist Mejlis terrorists supported by Turkey and Daesh. These are taking over the country as corrupt central power in Kiev both shows its complicity and its utter weakness.

Alexey Zhuravko, the man who warned about terrorist act against Crimean power supply one month before it happened, is warning of more terrorist acts planned by ukro-nazis and Crimean Tartar Mejlis backed by Turkey. He warns that 16 more strategic transformers may be blown up. He also warns of a threat of terrorist acts against telephone lines and chemical pipelines to Crimea. There are plenty of those running through eastern and southern Ukraine. Zhuravko warns about possible techno-ecological catastrophe around his native Kherson as well as Nikolaev, reaching into Crimea.

He also warns about Mejlis/ukro-nazis threatening a reign of terror, such as blowing up of Crimean Power Bridge, as well as the regular bridge to Crimea.

I will discuss in detail many seemingly unconnected events and threats forming all around Black Sea, including Caucasus (Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan), Russia, Crimea, Odessa, Moldova, Pridnestrovie, Bulgaria, Balkans, especially, Serbia and Montenegro, and of course, Turkey and the straits. The region is boiling over and may blow up at any moment. Everything that is happening in this region, however unconnected it may appear, is invisibly orchestrated from one and the same center. We’ll connect the dots and form the full picture in the two upcoming reports: ESR7: TURKISH CONUNDRUM and in the following ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.

  1. Lada,
    What’s the state of the North Crimean Canal and the water supply which provides 85% of the water supply to Crimea? That seemed to be a huge issue back in April 2014. It could be sabotaged again… unfortunately.


  2. I don’t get how Crimea can have 100% energy independence from Ukraine if the electrical power is coming from Ukraine. Even new transportation corridor still comes from/goes to Ukraine and is subject to interdiction or disruption.


  3. You did explain it in the first sentence. I never read the first sentence🙂. I found a chart showing Kerch Strait and I can see what you are talking about. Not the brightest light on the string here but it’s okay to make your readers do a little work. I was thinking, also, about how stupid the Turks are by putting their submarines anywhere near a Russian warship. Death wish, I guess.


  4. It seems like a good time to post this.

    Great CGI animation of the construction highlights and characteristics of the coming bridge over Kerch Strait:

    Captions in the video:

    Year 2015. A bridge must connect Crimea with the continental Russia.
    Year 1984. BAM (Baikal-Amur Railway) connected Eastern Siberia with the Far East
    Today, only 4 million people per year cross the Kerch Stair
    Millions of people are awaiting this bridge.
    Our grandfathers built BAM.
    We will build the bridge.
    2 railway tracks
    – 47 pairs of trains per day
    – 14 million passengers per year
    – 13 million tonnes goods per year
    Total span – 19km
    Bridge built from 8 points
    Height 35 meters
    Span of the ship-fairing arch – 227 meters
    4 car lanes
    – up to 40000 cars per day
    – projected speed up to 120km/h
    #ждеммост (Twitter hashtag meaning “waiting for the bridge”)
