We can talk about inclusion in a list of three or four citizens and legal entities.

The Union will discuss the extension of sanctions against Russia on the proposal of Germany, whose concern appeared in the center of the scandal with the supply of turbines in the annexed Crimea. This writes Reuters, citing diplomatic sources.

We can talk about inclusion in a list of three or four citizens and legal entities.

Agency sources indicated that we can talk about the officials of the Ministry of energy and about the company that transported the turbine to the Crimea.

Recall that the transportation of equipment on the Peninsula were engaged in a “daughter” of Rostec’s Technopromexport company, and installation company Interavtomatika.

In addition to breaking license agreements with Russian companies, Siemens announced its withdrawal from the number of shareholders of the company Interavtomatika in which the German company owns about 46 percent.

The Siemens scandal erupted in early July when Reuters reported the German turbines which were originally built for the Taman, but got on the annexed Peninsula.

The company has accused Russia of violating the terms of the contract and filed a lawsuit in the Moscow Arbitration court. The Kremlin insists that arrived in Crimea “Russian-made equipment, assembled from Russian components”.

On July 20, the Board of Directors of Power machines, which is involved in the scandal with the supply of turbines by Siemens in the Crimea, decided to terminate the powers of the General Director of Roman Filippov.
