Subject: Russian troops block power shutoff

A Russian strategic missile base had its power shut off as a result of a
year-long accumulated nonpayment of bills totalling about $683,000.  As a
result, troops took over the utility's switching station and restored power.

Earlier shutdowns affected hospitals, an air-traffic control center, coal
mines, a city sewage plant, and in 1995 a nuclear submarine at an Arctic sub
base.  [Source: Associated Press article by Vladimir Isachenkov, 12 Sep
