MOSCOW, June 18. /ITAR-TASS/. The lack of investment by Ukraine into its gas transportation system was the reason behind Tuesday’s explosion of a pipeline and may lead to new accidents, Gazprom Deputy CEO Vitaly Markelov said in a news conference on Wednesday.
Markelov also said that Gazprom’s pumping to Europe was maintained in usual volumes of 185 million cubic meters per day.
“Ukraine owns the gas transportation system, that is why we do not conduct any investigations,” he added. “It is their business.”
On Tuesday, a section of the Urengoy-Pomary-Uzhgorod gas pipeline exploded, with the police saying that the blast was caused by a bomb. The gas flow was directed to a parallel pipeline.
