During the recent disturbances in Belarus, organized by some extremist groups supported by outside forces, some sabotage attempts against the gas pipelines transporting Russian gas to
Europe have been carried out by the extremists and the “Gazprom” technicians found serious damages to one of its pipelines near the Belarusian-Polish border.
Due to this fact “Gazprom” administration has decided to stop the gas export through this pipeline for the period of 15 days for the purposes of conducting full-scale technical assessment of the situation and repairing the pipeline, if needed.
Using this opportunity, the “Gazprom” administration would like to express its apologies to the parties concerned.
