Peace Time: October 5, 2001


A column of Ukrainian tanks on its way to a military training ground got lost in rain and darkness late on September 27th. Deviating from their assigned route, they smashed into a natural gas pipeline, cutting off supplies. The Ukrainian Emergencies Ministry shut off gas supplies to stop leaks at the regional pipeline between the towns of Berdychiv and Zhytomir. No injuries were reported and the line was repaired overnight. - Adam Geibel
