Students of the Vernadsky Crimean Federal University in the city of Simferopol live in dormitories without heat since the beginning of the power blockade, according to the Crimean News. Electricity is supplied only from 09.00 p.m. to 12.00 a.m.

- Electricity is delivered from 09.00 p.m. to 12.00 a.m., and it is turned off together with heating. To wake up in the cold without light is not the best incentive to learn, says a third year student Julia.

Since the stoves in the kitchen are only electric, it’s impossible to cook the meals.

- We lack food as we cannot cook on cold stoves. We would like to have heat and hot water, said Alena, a resident of one of the dorms.

Students complain they are not assisted; they cannot go home either since the studies have not been canceled.
