The same thing happened in Canada in the province of Quebec with the same long duration power outage.
The military can't fix all the damaged infrastructure all that fast. They would have to have deployed
generators but the number involved would be massive. Nobody had the domestic backup power
in Canada since we are not talking about one of those 4000 Watt generators but a larger one tied
into the electrical system of the house. In Russia people live in multi-residential buildings so those
buildings would require hospital sized backup generators. Those are huge and nobody anywhere
installs them in apartment buildings.
Anyone trying to spin this as a Russian fail is a scumbag.
U am not trying to spin as "Russian fail", I just posting it because these things make the trust in the government go down.
It always fluctuates.
KVS is right. I lived in Winnipeg back in the 90's and remember that power went out during winter storms. Thank goodness we had wood burning fire places and not natural gas BS cause we would have froze to death.
Power outages and such is a major issue during any winter storm. And Winnipeg is flat terrain mostly built on marsh land. So there isn't nearly the excuse.
The people bitching in the article are simply idiots. Yeah, it sucks but thats what happens. Because authorities are not right there and then at the very second is a laugh.
