Siemens considers the withdrawal from the joint enterprises in Russia such as Siemens technologies of gas turbines and Interautomatic. The CEO of Siemens Joe Kaeser considers such possibility but the company refused to comment the situation. The German magazine Wirtschafts Woche reported this citing the own sources.
As it reported, Siemens created the special group on this issue after the scandal of the supplies of the gas turbines to Crimea. According to the EU sanctions, the German companies cannot supply such equipment to the peninsula.
The information that the turbines of German concern Siemens will be supplied to occupied Crimea appeared in July 2017. The company recognized that its production was delivered to the peninsula by evasion of the sanctions. Later Siemens filed the lawsuit to the Commercial Court of Moscow.
Also, it was reported that two gas turbines occurred in occupied Feodosia delivered from Russia.
