Avdiivka may again be on the verge of technogenic catastrophe in the next heating season. This was announced in the PJSC Donetskoblgaz, - RBC-Ukraine reports.

The company notes that the construction of a high-pressure supply pipeline from the Ocheretino Gas Distributing Plant to Avdiivka is in question again. Donetskoblgaz did not receive clarifications from all instances which they relied on because the tender which the International Committee of the Red Cross have held to purchase pipes for the pipeline was won by Eurotrubplast firm, the "daughter" of the Russian Polyplastic company, - the statement said.

According to the Deputy Chairman of the Board for Capital Construction of PJSC Donetskoblgaz Elena Leskonog, the issue of continuous gas delivery to Avdiivka and settlements of the Yasynuvatsky district remains the first on the table.

"Gas comes from the territory which is not controlled by Ukraine, and the situation can seriously worsen at any moment", - she reported.

Donetskoblgaz notes that the problem is not only in the origin of the pipe, but also in the fact that the company which will have to pipeline "literally under fire from the territories controlled by the "DPR" has no confidence in the proper quality of Russian pipes".

The media already reported earlier that the pipes do not have certificates of compliance with the technical specifications of the construction project. According to Donetskoblgaz, Eurotrubplast allegedly had to supply pipes of the Rubezhansky Pipe Plant production, which belongs to it, but Elena Leskonog states that this enterprise has not been working since the beginning of armed hostilities.

"We heard about the offer to put a pipe produced in the Russian Federation on October 13 for the first time at a joint meeting at the head office of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Kyiv. The meeting was attended by experts from the ICRC, PJSC Donetskoblgaz, the Ministry of Temporarily Occupied Territories and representatives of TH Eurotrubplast as a supplier of pipes for construction. Ukrainian producers of polyethylene pipes were not invited to the meeting", - Leskonog stated.

According to her, the director of TH Eurotrubplast reported in the presence of representatives of the ICRC that they cannot produce the necessary pipe for construction in Ukraine and therefore the pipe of the Klimovsk Pipe Plant (the Russian Federation) will be purchased and delivered to the facility, and the chief engineer of the project was tried to bring pressure on, convincing to accept a pipe without "certificates of conformity".

It is noted that Donetskoblgaz sent appeals to the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine, the Security Service and the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine, the Ministry of Temporarily Occupied Territories, the NEURCU, the Ministry of Regional Development, Construction and Housing of Ukraine and the Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry of Ukraine immediately after the meeting. At the same time, the company received no replies.
