Responsible for Russian market and gasification of the Deputy Chairman of the Board “Gazprom” Valery Golubev complains that his country house in the Tver region is not connected to mains gas, and passing the main gas pipeline “Yamal-Europe” in the forest stopped growing mushrooms.

Communicating with participants of the forum “Gas of Russia” and journalists, he said: “I tell you, my country house near Torzhok in the Tver region, between St. Petersburg and Moscow, right on the route Moscow-Leningrad. Passes by the gas pipeline “Yamal-Europe”, is the Torzhok compressor station. In our village Bibikovo, in which Pushkin visited is the Museum of Pushkin, no natural gas. The cylinders we carry from Torzhok”.

He also noted that past through this area export pipeline to Germany and Poland changed the ecological situation in the microregions.

“The pipe went through and crossed all the paths of migration of cows! A cow can’t go to the forest to eat grass. Before the cow was walking through the woods, the ferns broke out. Now don’t go into the forest, the grass in the forest do not eat, the forest is overgrown – no longer grow mushrooms. There were some nice ceps – like a cork from champagne. Here the impact on the environment. A lot of gas, but very high pressure,” – said Golubev.
