KIEV, June 17. /ITAR-TASS/. A gas blast went off at the Russian-Ukrainian Urengoy-Pomary-Uzhgorod gas main on Tuesday afternoon, the press service of the police department in central Ukraine’s Poltava Region told ITAR-TASS.

“The gas explosion went off one kilometer away from the village of Iskovtsy. According to available reports, no people were injured in the gas blast, fire-fighting efforts continue,” the press service said.

Eyewitnesses said that the flame rose 200 meters up after the blast.

The blast at the Russian-Ukrainian Urengoy-Pomary-Uzhgorod gas pipeline in Ukraine did not affect the transit of Russian natural gas, British news agency Reuters reported with reference to a source in Russian energy giant Gazprom on Tuesday.

“Gas export did not reduce, this is a parallel gas pipeline,” the source stated.
