State of emergency in Crimea after power lines blown up

A man with his dog walks by a mural depicting Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Crinean city of YaltaCrimea declared a state of emergency on Sunday after its main electricity lines from Ukraine were blown up, leaving the Russian-annexed peninsula in darkness after the second such attack in as many days. The electricity feed from Ukraine was cut at 00:25 am (2225 GMT), the Crimean branch of Russia’s emergency situations ministry said in a statement. Crimea still depends on Ukraine for its electricity even after its annexation by Russia in March last year, a move which paved the way for the uprising in eastern Ukraine that has now killed more than 8,000 people.
