«The Siemens case»: the EU expands sanctions against Russia

The ambassadors of the EU agreed on the inclusion in the black list for Russia four people and three companies – because of the scandal surrounding the turbines of the company Siemens. People’s names and company names are not yet public.

About it reports on Wednesday, July 26, the news Agency TASS, citing a diplomatic source and the correspondent of «Radio Liberty» Ricarda of Jozwiak.

The newspaper «Kommersant» writes, citing its own informed sources said that under the restrictive measures can get included in «rostec» JSC and JSC «VO «Technopromexport» (TPE), as well as their heads.

In addition, in the «black list» of the EU can be included an official from the Ministry of energy – most likely, it will be the Deputy Minister Andrei Cherezov, who oversees the Crimea.

Recall that the «European response» to the supply of gas turbines for Siemens in the Crimea to bypass sanctions was initiated by Germany. The German foreign Ministry had earlier said: «In response to violation of the contract for the supply of turbines in the Crimea, we are preparing a response at the European level».
