On September 26, large explosion thundered in the Lubensky district in the west of the Poltava region in Ukraine. According to preliminary reports, the explosion occurred as a result of depressurization of the local main underground high-pressure gas pipeline, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine reported. The gas continue burning in the area.
The local emergency services are extinguishing the burning grass in the area of the explosion.
A few minutes before the incident, the head of the region wrote about an air alert in the Poltava region. According to the official air alert map of Ukraine, air alert again sounded in most regions of the country, including Poltava. However, no information about the day strikes was reported.
The Ukrainian authorities are yet to reveal any other details, including which gas pipeline was damaged by th explosion. The main gas pipeline Urengoy — Pomary — Uzhgorod passes through the Poltava region, through which Russian gas is supplied to Europe. In 2014, another explosion damaged this gas pipeline in the Poltava region.
The details are yet to be revealed. However, it should not be excluded that the explosion was not an accident. Paid by Washington, Kiev will try its best to cut Europe from any Russian supplies as soon as possible. Some unconfirmed Russian strikes can by used a pretext to blame Moscow for another catastrophe.
