Russian oil has stopped flowing to Hungary through the “Druzhba” (Friendship) pipeline transiting Ukraine, the Hungarian oil company MOL confirmed on Tuesday evening.
The official reason given by the Ukrainian pipeline overseer was that a Russian air strike hit a transformer station near the border with Belarus, which supplies electricity to one of the pumping stations for the pipeline.
Ukraine has also informed Russia’s Transneft that the pumping was suspended due to a “drop in voltage,” said Igor Demin, the company spokesman.
Crude oil deliveries to Hungary, Czechia and Slovakia have been “temporarily halted,” MOL said in a statement.
“We are monitoring the events and, together with the Ukrainian partners, we are examining the conditions for restarting the Friendship pipeline,” the Hungarian oil company added.
