That’s the request from lawmakers in blacked out Crimea to highlight their ordeal
Moscow: Lawmakers in Russia-occupied Crimea, which is grappling with a nearly two-week-long blackout, are suggesting parents name their newborn boys Generator to mark the ordeal.
Unknown attackers blew up electricity pylons in Ukraine on November 22, leaving the peninsula largely without power.
After Russia annexed Crimea in March 2014, it began building an underwater electricity cable system to Crimea from Russia's Krasnodar region, and Russia President Vladimir Putin travelled there on Wednesday to inaugurate the first delivery of Russian power.
Russian news agencies on Friday quoted local parliament speaker Vladimir Konstantinov suggesting that parents name their newborn girls Sveta, or ‘light’ in Russian, and boys ‘Generator’ to highlight the government’s efforts to overcome the crisis.
