New Oil Pipeline?

MOSCOW () -- Russia might build a new oil pipeline circumventing Ukraine if a dispute with Kiev over Druzhba pipeline transit fees is not resolved, Interfax quoted Deputy Fuel and Energy Minister Pyotr Nidzelsky as saying Tuesday.

It said the ministry had developed a program various measures, including constructing a link connecting existing Russian pipelines to Eastern European markets, which would bypass Ukraine's Druzhba pipeline to those markets.
