The occupiers of Melitopol want to connect the city to the gas pipeline that is in occupied Crimea. The power structures of the Russian Federation have been demanding this from the Ukrainian authorities since the first days of the capture of the city. Mayor Ivan Fedorov said this during a briefing on July 13.

"In the first days of the occupation, the employees of the security forces of the Russian Federation came to my office and insisted that we switch to the main pipe, which is in Crimea. But at that time, the technical employees of our city gas company said that it was impossible, that we could not switch the gas transport system in this way. Whether the occupiers managed to do it in four months, we will find out in a day or two. But today there is no confirmation. And whether there is a technical possibility – there is also no such information", he said.
