MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian pipeline monopoly Transneft TRNF_p.MM said on Monday it had fully resumed oil supplies via the Druzhba pipeline following a major oil contamination episode earlier this year, RIA news agency reported.

Flows through the Druzhba pipeline were suspended in late April due to contaminated crude, sending shockwaves through global oil markets.
