KIEV, June 17
KIEV, June 17 (Reuters) - Ukraine said on Tuesday it was treating an explosion on a pipeline carrying Russian natural gas to the rest of Europe as a possible "act of terrorism".
"Several theories of what happened are being considered including the key theory - an act of terrorism," Interior Ministry Arsen Avakov said in a statement after the blast in central Ukraine, which did not disrupt the gas flow.
