The Moscow Arbitration Court refused to arrest four gas turbine units that were brought to Crimea due to the lawsuit of the German Siemens concern, RIA Novosti reported citing a file of arbitration cases.
"The Moscow Arbitration Court accepted the lawsuit filed by Siemens against Rostekh's structures on the supply of turbines for power plants in Crimea, while the court dismissed Siemens' application about the arrest of turbines and the ban on their installation," the report said.
It is said that preliminary hearings on the case are scheduled for September 18.
As reported, the lawsuit entered the arbitration of Moscow on July 11. The reason for the filing of the claim was the diversion of Tekhnopromexport gas turbine installations of German production from Taman (Krasnodar Territory, Russia) to the Crimea.
In turn, Technopromexport initiated a pre-investigation check of the regional department of Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs regarding Siemens Gas Turbine Technology on the fact of non-fulfillment of contractual obligations, which could threaten Siemens with criminal liability and possible withdrawal from the Russian market.
