MOSCOW (Reuters) - An explosion at a transit pipeline in central Ukraine has not cut Russian gas exports to Europe as the fuel is flowing through a parallel pipe, a source at Russia’s top natural gas producer Gazprom said on Tuesday.
“Exports have not been cut. There is a parallel pipeline,” the source told Reuters.
Earlier on Tuesday, Ukrainian police said an explosion had hit a transit pipeline in Ukraine.
