Details: Back in the spring, the Russians destroyed a gas pipeline in the temporarily occupied part of Zaporizhzhia Oblast. Subsequently, Yevhen Balytskyi, the Russian-appointed puppet "governor" of the occupied part of Zaporizhzhia Oblast, promised to restore the gas supply by autumn.
The Russians wanted to launch a new gas pipeline from Rostov, and Balytskyi assured residents that the works would be completed by 1 October.
The start of the heating season in Melitopol and Berdiansk has been postponed several times. But for now, the Russians have stopped the construction of the gas pipeline to Berdiansk and Melitopol.
Quote: "According to information provided by the resistance, the occupiers are currently dismantling the gas pipeline between Berdiansk and Melitopol. Therefore, Zaporizhzhia Oblast remains without gas supply."
The National Resistance Center called on residents to evacuate from temporarily occupied territories during the "special operation" to liberate the region.
