Based on the method of two-dimensional inversion of the data of magnetotelluric studies, we have first identified geoelectric parameters of the crust and the upper mantle of the junction between the Scythian plates and the East European platform (EEP) adjacent to it on the north and the mountain Crimea from the south. A reasonable assumption about the existence of two conducting objects in the studied region is made. One of them is accepted to be the continuation of the Kirovograd electric conductivity anormaly. Another one has a latitudinal stretch and can be obviously attributed to the junction between EEP and Scythian plates.
