LEBANON, BEIRUT (8:10 A.M.) – Russia’s Energy Ministry has decided to supply power to the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) after Ukraine cut electricity, an informed source told TASS on Tuesday.

“Such steps taken by the Ukrainian authorities may lead to a humanitarian disaster, this is why Russia’s Energy Ministry has made a decision to start supplying electricity in order to provide humanitarian assistance to the people of the LPR,” the source said.

“The necessary level of power supplies has been maintained,” he added.

The Russian Energy Ministry however has declined to comment on power supplies to the LPR.

The powers that be in kiev-urkaine had to know where such an action would lead, so I would have to surmise that cutting electricity off from the territory of Luhansk was a purposeful act.

First, I believe not only do they know they will never get the Donbas republics to return to kiev-ukraine governance, but also know that such an arrangement would be doomed to failure from its conception and such a failure would lay the… Read more »

your view rests solely on western powers somehow being controlled by their population and all uki junta is doing is gaining their sympathy and support.

Was I Juncker, I’d give a call to Putin : “Hey Vlad, if you want to annex Donbass, no problem, and if you want to annex all Ukraine too, idem : the Poles are doing s**t with Gazprom access to Opal pipeline, the gas must flow” 😆 (note : parody of Frank Herbert’s Dune : “the spice must flow” 😆 ) Slavonac : you don’t seem to get all this s**t : it’s just about pipelines! You have US companies that have interests in KSA/Qatar that want to force the EU to buy from them instead… Read more »
