"A large number of gas pipelines were destroyed by gunshots, explosions, part of the pipeline was mined. The Ukratranshaz crew is doing everything possible to ensure the supply of gas throughout the territory of Ukraine; constant restoration work was underway and is continuing at this time. Today, the situation was the most severe, because in the last five-six hours our services could not reach those pipelines that could restore the full supply into the ATO area. Now we have this opportunity and the supply has been restored," Kobolev said.
