Transport and Communications Minister Mykola Rudkovskyi is not ruling out the possibility that the derailing of a Dnipropetrovsk-Kyiv train at the Rosava station (Kyiv region) on May 2 and the explosion on the Urengoy-Pomary-Uzhhorod gas pipeline in the Kyiv region were deliberately organized in order to destabilize the situation in Ukraine.
The press service of the Transport and Communications Ministry announced this in a statement.
According to the statement, Rudkovskyi is concerned that the derailing of the Dnipropetrovsk-Kyiv train and the explosion on the Urengoy-Pomary-Uzhhorod gas pipeline could be connected and that they could have a political motive.
«The possibility of this being a chain of planned actions aimed at destabilizing the situation in the country cannot be ruled out,» the press service quoted Rudkovskyi as saying.
Rudkovskyi said that the Transport and Communications Ministry was initiating a legislative amendment to introduce responsibility for unauthorized interference in the operations of the countrys transport system.
