RUSSIAN GAS SUPPLY TO ARMENIA RESTORED
Russian gas supplies to Armenia were restored on Monday after being
severed for a day when bombs were found under a pipeline in the
volatile southern region of Ingushetia.
Armenia gets around 2 billion cubic metres of gas annually from
Russia, but customers were not affected, said Shushan Sardaryan,
a spokeswoman for ArmRosGazprom.
"The supply of gas to Armenia has now restarted," Shushan Sardaryan
Russian police defused two bombs and searched the area for other
explosive devices, after the Mozdok-Tbilisi pipeline was shut down
Officials then worked to restore the flow of gas in the pipeline which
also serves customers in Russia’s North Ossetia and Ingushetia regions.
