Russian oil shipments via the Druzhba pipeline to Hungary have restarted, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Wednesday, adding that the pipeline was still operating with low pressure after a temporary shutdown on Tuesday.

Oil supply to parts of Eastern and Central Europe via a section of the Druzhba pipeline were temporarily suspended on Tuesday for technical reasons, according to oil pipeline operators in Hungary and Slovakia. Hungary's MOL said that its Ukrainian partner told the company that a Russian rocket hit a power station providing electricity for a pump station, leading to the stoppage.
