The Energy Ministry of Russia is to start temporary electricity shutoffs in the south part of the Russian-occupied Crimean peninsula, the Interfax.ru news agency reported on Aug.6.

The agency cited an unnamed source in the Energy Ministry saying Russian government was forced to start the power shutoffs on the south coast of Crimea from Aug.6 because of the Simferopol-Yalta electricity grid overload.
