Ukraine says gas blast did not affect gas flow to Europe
KIEV, June 17
KIEV, June 17 (Reuters) - A blast on a transit pipeline in Ukraine on Tuesday had no impact on Russian gas exports to the rest of Europe, Ukraine's state-run gas transport monopoly Ukrtransgaz said.
"It (the explosion) clearly did not affect the gas flow," a Ukrtransgaz spokesman said.
Earlier on Tuesday, Ukrainian police said the explosion rocked the Urengoy-Pomary-Uzhgorod pipeline, a major supply route for gas being transported through Ukraine to the European Union.
