The authorities of the self-proclaimed People's Republic of Luhansk plan to build a power line from Russia within two months to supply electricity to Luhansk. According to the head of the republic, Igor Plotnitsky, a corresponding project has been developed, RIA Novosti reports.
"There have conducted talks before, and now we proceed to a more serious stage. We will rebuild and build a new line between the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of Luhansk to receive extra electricity," said Plotnitsky.
According to him, all necessary calculations for the construction of еру line have already been made. The line will consist of both newly built and restored sections.
"The construction will begin in the near future. The previous line was weak, so one will have to put up new props. This issue has been resolved ... I think that the line will be built in the next two months," said Plotnitsky.
