You're reading: Stamping out Soviet mentality in Crimea

Among them there are Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars, but not only. Educated people are packing and leaving too. Those who cannot leave look sad and try to hide their emotions.

It is not unthinkable and it has already been announced by the self-proclaimed authorities of the Kremlin-blacked Crimea that the peninsula may start to ration electricity, fearing a cutoff from Ukraine’s mainland, which supplies most of the power and water to the territory stolen from the nation by Russia’s military force. Rationing electricity will mean that housing blocks will be assigned daily electricity consumption plans that will limit the hours and possibly even days of power.

People expect a sharp increase in food prices. So there are lines in supermarkets. People are buying canned fish and meat, alongside salt and the cheapest soap. I wonder what they would use the soap for if the self-proclaimed “government” of Prime Minister Serhiy Aksyonov announces water consumption limits as well?
