"Tonight there was an attempt to connect one of the power grids, which comes from a plant of [Ukrainian] tycoon Firtash - Titan. The repair crew which came together with officials from the Interior Ministry and the Security Service of Ukraine tried to launch the power line according to agreements reached between leaders of the Crimea blockade and [Ukrainian President] Poroshenko," according to the statement.

As reported, the members of the Right Sector, as well some other activists of the blockade were surprised that the representatives of the Majlis had agreed to resume power supplies to the occupied Crimea.

"We do not understand the position of the authorities and the organizers of the blockade regarding the economic cooperation and trade with the enemy. Such actions are a betrayal of the state interests. In time of war it is a serious crime," the statement reads.
