In response to the new anti-Russian EU sanctions due to the supply of Siemens turbines to Crimea, Russia can impose its own sanctions against the German concern. This was stated by the first deputy chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Foreign Affairs Vladimir Jabarov, RIA Novosti reported.
"Despite the clear statements from Russia that there were no supplies, Siemens took a different position. They have a very large office here, they sell a lot of household appliances here, Bosh is the same Siemens. Let's see what kind of retaliatory measures the Trade Ministry, MFA will introduce, "Jabarov said.
He added that people should not dramatize the situation, noting that "we will definitely survive without the Siemens turbines."
"Having regard to Council Decision 2014/145/CFSP of 17 March 2014 concerning restrictive measures in respect of actions undermining or threatening the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine (1), the persons and entities listed in the Annex to this Decision shall be added to the list set out in the Annex to Decision 2014/145/CFSP,” the document says.
