The pipeline was damaged. A reconstruction of the explosive event is being worked out. This is reported by the National Antiterrorist Committee (NAC).

The emergency occurred on October 31 at about 20:00 at the gas distribution station located near the village of Vinogradnoe in the Alushta area. According to the NAC, a gas pressure drop was recorded, and at the same time, the supply of electricity went off due to the collapse of the transmission line support.

“When inspecting the scene, experts discovered external damage to the gas pipeline,” the report said.

On-site emergency services are at work, and all possible explanations are being chased down, including sabotage, notes the NAC. Repairs should be concluded by day’s end.

We note in the background that on August 15, the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation prevented a series of sabotage in the Crimea, prepared by Ukraine. Gennady Limeshko, agent of the SBU (Security Service of Ukraine) was detained. He has confessed.
