The Ministry for the Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine plans to build a gas pipeline on the territory of the Schastiansky district of Luhansk region by 2023. This was reported by the press service of the ministry.
According to the ministry, a meeting was held on a relevant issue, which was attended by representatives of the Ministry for Reintegration, the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources, the Luhansk Regional State Administration, Ukrgazvydobuvannya and the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
During the meeting, the parties discussed the routes for the construction of the gas pipeline and determined a further action plan for the implementation of the investment project.
It is noted that in the future, the gas pipeline will be able to provide natural gas supplies to other settlements of the region. The project will be completed until 2023. The approximate amount of investments will be UAH 410.5 million ($ 15 mln) with a payback period of seven years.
Meanwhile, Russia's Federal Security Service has published a video of Crimean Tatars' "confession" about a "sabotage" on a gas pipeline in occupied Crimea.
In the video, the two defendants talk about how they allegedly blew up a pipe.
It is noted that according to the first defendant, who introduced himself as Akhtemov Asan Islamovych while being in Kherson, met with a man named Said. The man proposed him blow up a gas pipe in the village of Perevalne. And later, someone called Serhiy allegedly gave him an explosive device and told him how to use it.
