Ivan Nechepurkeno and Neil MacFarquhar. As Sabotage Blacks Out Crimea, Tatars Prevent Repairs. the New York Times, November 23, 2015, accessed November 24, 2015, http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/24/world/europe/crimea-tatar-power-lines-ukraine.html?_r=0
MOSCOW — Crimean Tatar activists and Ukrainian nationalists on Monday prevented repair crews from restoring the main power lines in southern Ukraine that supply Crimea, leaving the disputed peninsula in the dark and Ukraine and Russia headed toward a standoff over the issue.
The power lines were knocked down by saboteurs on Sunday, forcing millions of residents to live without electricity.
The Tatar activists who blockaded the damaged site said they would thwart repairs until Russia released political prisoners and allowed international organizations to monitor human rights in Crimea. The activists say that the 300,000-member Tatar minority has faced systematic repression since Russia annexed the peninsula in March 2014.
