Blast destroys 30 m of Ukraine pipeline

Stopping the flow of Russian gas to Europe

An explosion has destroyed a 30-metre section of a gas pipeline crossing Ukraine, stopping the flow of Russian gas to Europe, the Emergencies Ministry said on Monday, according to Reuters.

"There was a powerful explosion that destroyed 30 metres of the pipeline. There are no casualties and no threat to local residents," ministry spokesman Oleskander Trigub said by telephone.

"I cannot say how long it will take to restore the flow of gas."
