The Federal Foreign Office of Germany says that installing turbines of a German company Siemens in occupied Crimea may be detrimental to Russia-Germany relations, according to Bild am Sonntag.
“The federal government yet again reminded Russia about their assurances and emphasized that such a major violation of sanctions may complicate German-Russian relations,” a representative of German Foreign Office said.
He also emphasized that Germany warned Russia that it’s inadmissible to violate sanctions, which include delivery of German equipment to Crimea and “illegal” actions of Russian companies.
As it was reported earlier, Siemens decided to stop delivering power equipment to Russian state companies. Siemens claims their turbines were illicitly transported to Crimea without the company’s knowledge, thus violating the agreement. Kremlin refused to comment on the issue.
