The Committee of permanent representatives of member countries of the EU in Brussels (COREPER) agreed on the introduction of personal sanctions against a number of individuals and legal entities from Russia on the background of the scandal around the supply of the Crimea turbines manufactured by Siemens, reports TASS citing a diplomatic source in the EU Council. That EU ambassadors have agreed to impose sanctions against four Russians and three companies, reported on his page on Twitter and the correspondent of “Radio Liberty” Rikard Jozwiak.
21 July 2017, Siemens announced the start of the process of breaking the license agreement for the supply of equipment for power plants. The decision explained that the company had received “credible information” about what her gas turbines contrary to the terms of the contract “illegally moved into the Crimea.”
Siemens previously filed against the “company” lawsuit in the Moscow arbitration court, which shall consider it on August 21.
On 24 July Reuters reported that the EU on the proposal of Germany intend to discuss the extension of sanctions against Russia, with possible inclusion in the black list three or four officials of the energy Ministry and the company that transported the turbine to the Crimea.
On the morning of July 26, the newspaper “Kommersant”, citing a source close to the European Commission, said that the sanctions could end up in charge of Crimea Deputy Minister of energy Andrey Cherezov.
