Bad weather may completely cut off annexed Crimea from Russia



2014/09/23 • Crimea

Russia may be rid of its connection to the Ukrainian peninsula within the next several days.

The Kerch ferry, which currently the only mode of transportation that connects annexed Crimea with continental Russia may suspend its services because of impending bad weather.

This is reported by the press service of the universal transport directory in Crimea. According to meteorological services, bad weather is expected at the Kerch ferry on September 23-24: rainfall and an increase in wind to 25-30 meters per second.

As of 10 a.m. on Tuesday, September 23, 1050 cars are waiting in line at the port of Crimea.

    Many Crimea Ukrainians and Tatars in Crimea have been posting, asking Ukraine to slow and shut off at intervals water and power to Crimea. hey want the Russians there to know that life was better under Ukraine, that their properties are valueless now.

    Don’t laugh just yet. Russia will be forced to take a land bridge through Mariupol, and the Azov coast down to Kherson to supply Crimea if the weather remains an issue. That would get very messy but would be preferable to Putin than admitting life is worse in Crimea under Russian control.
