Military intruders unearthed the main gas pipeline near Armiansk in Crimea. The security zone of this line is normally 200 meters. Yet, the outsiders have dug in an armored transport vehicle 5 meters from the gas line and laid mines next to it. Thus, any bullet or shrapnel that hits the pipe would cause an explosion. Gas engineers are not being allowed to enter the the site and are being kept out by gunmen. They are being told that it is an exclusion zone. Senior managers of “Chornomornaftogaz” urged Ukrainian and local Crimean authorities to take the “little green men” away from the local security zone. Moreover, parallel to this pipe a more powerful line lies, “Kharkivtransgaz”. ” If, God forbid, a gas pipeline explodes in this place, the exclusion zone will become a devastated wasteland and additionally, most of the Crimea will be left without any gas”, said Serhiy Golovin, Chairman of the Board at “Chornomornaftogaz “. The Russian military could trigger a man-made disaster in the Crimea.

As reported earlier, armed Russian soldiers have been blocking Ukrainian military units and other sites in the Crimea for a week. Their only demands are that people surrender, lay down arms, side with Russia, and completely renounce Ukraine. Other nations in the world are condemning the actions of the Russian Federation and are imposing sanctions. However, Putin, remains relentless. His press service even claims that the military in the Crimea are not from Russia.
