KIEV Ukraine's Energy Ministry suggested on Tuesday that an explosion on the main pipeline carrying Russian gas through Ukraine to the rest of Europe could have been a "terrorist attack".
"It is not the first attempted terrorist attack on the Ukrainian gas transport system," the ministry said in a statement, referring to two explosions on transit pipelines in the western part of the country in May.
It gave no more details but Ukraine's government faces a rebellion by pro-Russian separatists in the east of the country.
