PRAGUE, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Czech pipeline operator MERO has not observed disruptions so far in the flow of oil through the Druzhba pipeline pumping Russian crude through Ukraine, a spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

Hungary's oil refiner MOL said earlier it had been notified by Ukraine that flows to Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic had been temporarily suspended after a Russian missile hit a power station providing electricity for a pumping station on the pipeline.
