The European Union imposed sanctions on Russian Siemens partners and the Deputy Minister of Energy Andrey Cherezov, reports Official Journal of the European Union.

"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.

“Gas turbines, which are a substantial element in the development of new power plants in Crimea, have been supplied from Russia in breach of the contractual provisions for the original sale of the turbines from a company established in the Union to Russia. The purpose of those power plants is to establish an independent power supply for Crimea and Sevastopol, thus supporting their separation from Ukraine and undermining the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine. Moreover, this action undermines the Union's non-recognition policy of the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol,” the text says.
