The air section of the gas pipeline to the gas distribution station (GDS) Popasna was damaged due to hostilities. There are no victims among GTSOU employees.
The GDS operator turned off the crane and located the emergency area. As a result, gas supply to Popasna and nearby localities was ceased. More than 20 thousand residents are left without gas.
Since the specified section of the gas pipeline is in a continuous military operations area, the GTSOU employees cannot start repairing the gas pipeline. As soon as the slightest opportunity arises, GTSOU specialists will start restoring Popasna’s gas supply.
