Ukraine says gas blast did not affect gas flow to Europe

KIEV (Reuters) - A blast on a transit pipeline in Ukraine on Tuesday had no impact on Russian gas exports to the rest of Europe, Ukraine’s state-run gas transport monopoly Ukrtransgaz said.

“It (the explosion) clearly did not affect the gas flow,” a Ukrtransgaz spokesman said.

Earlier on Tuesday, Ukrainian police said the explosion rocked the Urengoy–Pomary–Uzhgorod pipeline, a major supply route for gas being transported through Ukraine to the European Union.
