Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin discussed the illegal delivery of Siemens gas turbines to occupied Crimea with Joe Kaeser, CEO of Siemens, as Klimkin wrote on Twitter.

“Had a good discussion with Siemens CEO Kaeser. They did everything so that the situation with turbines in Crimea doesn’t happen again. All European businesses should draw conclusions,” Klimkin wrote.

The scandal on the supply of the Siemens gas turbines to occupied Crimea beyond EU sanctions took place in July 2017. Four gas turbines produced by Siemens were brought to Crimea, having circumvented the sanctions that don’t allow having business with the occupied territory. Russia claimed they would be used in Taman but secretly brought them to the peninsula.

Because of this, the EU introduced sanctions against Russian partners of Siemens and Deputy Minister of Energy Andrey Cherezov. The sanctions envisage freezing their accounts and banning them from visiting EU countries.
