The first toll from the explosion in the Urengoi-Pomary-Uzhhorod gas pipeline, which runs from Russia to Ukraine, is three dead and one injured, reports TASS citing the emergency services.

The victims were employees of the gas company and were working on the pipeline.

The incident occurred in Russia's Vurnarsky District in the Chuvash Republic, about 680 kilometers east of Moscow.

The situation of electricity supply remains critical: 80% of the Kiev region is without electricity.

Due to the emergency, the water pumping stations of the Kyivvodokanal water distribution company are disconnected from the electricity grid: for this reason, there is not even water in Kiev.

The operator announced it on its website.

“Power will be restored to the pumping stations within an hour, so it will take some time for the water supply system to start up. Kyivvodokanal technicians are doing everything possible to return water to consumers' taps as soon as possible ", wrote Kyivvodokanal.
