MOSCOW, February 19. /TASS/. Halts in gas supplies to Donbas, Eastern Ukraine, are due to the damaging of the gas transportation system caused by the military actions in the area, Naftogaz of Ukraine company said in a statement Thursday.

"Due to numerous damages of the gas transportation infrastructure, caused by shelling and blasts in the area of military actions, gas supplies to the zone of the anti-terrorist operation were halted on February 18.
