    Deliveries of Russian gas to Turkey remain unaffected by the attempted coup in that country, a source in Russia's gas industry told RIA Novosti on Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Late on Friday, Turkish authorities said that an attempted coup is taking place in the country. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan urged Turkish citizens to take to streets, stating that the coup attempt was carried out by a small group within the military.

    "We have no troubles," the source said, answering a question about possible decrease in gas supplies, following the coup attempt.

    The coup attempt was reportedly suppressed by early Saturday, with Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim stating that all coup supporters were identified and would be apprehended as the country was returning to normal life. Over 180 people were killed and 1,470 were injured during the events, while nearly 3,000 people have already been detained, according to the prime minister.
