I wonder what has caused this power cable failure? This is only civilian satellites. Military satellites are not affected.

MOSCOW, November 14 (RIA Novosti) - A severed communications cable in the Moscow region on Wednesday has rendered Russian specialists unable to control most of the country's civilian satellites, a source in the space industry said.
It will take at least 48 hours to fix the problem, the source said.
The emergency has not affected communications with the Russian segment of the International Space Station, the Federal Space Agency Roscosmos said.
