Crimea (autonomy within Ukraine) has created a month’s worth of water reserves and is installing diesel generators in case the Ukrainian authorities cut off electricity supplies to the peninsula, its Prime Minister Sergei Aksyonov said on Saturday, March 15. “There are about 900 diesel generators in the autonomy. With the consumption of 300 to 500 tonnes of diesel fuel a day, we can have enough mobile generators to cover the entire peninsula,” he said.
