The Crimean plant Titan belonging to Ukrainian businessman Dmytro Firtash receives a portion of the electricity it uses from the Kherson region, stated the representative of the President of Ukraine for Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev, Krym.Realii reports.
"Why is this happening? There are several explanations. Some say that if we do not supply a certain amount of electricity there, then a technogenic disaster could occur," said Dzhemilev.
He noted that a technogenic disaster is unlikely since Firtash’s plant has its own power generating facilities. Dzhemilev believes that Ukrainian electricity in the annexed peninsula is used for production by a plant that does not make payments to the budget of Ukraine, but works for Russia. Dzhemilev said that this issue will be considered at a meeting of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine.
At the same time, Firtash’s plant also receives raw materials from the mainland of Ukraine. According to Dzhemilev's data, the raw materials come from Zhytomyr region. "We will also investigate why Zhytomyr delivers raw materials to the occupied territory, how they do it and what agreements exist," Dzhemilev said.
Earlier, it was reported that Firtash’s plant temporarily ceased operations due to a roof collapse.
