Russian deputy minister blacklisted in new EU sanctions over Siemens turbines to Crimea


The European Union on Friday imposed sanctions on three more Russians, including Deputy Energy Minister Andrei Cherezov, and three Russian companies over the delivery of Siemens' turbines to Moscow-annexed Crimea, APA reports quoting Reuters.

 

Moscow criticized the EU's decision as an unfriendly and groundless act and said it reserved the right to take retaliatory steps.

 

The EU first introduced sanctions on Russia after the 2014 military takeover of the Black Sea peninsula from Kiev, and stepped them up repeatedly as Moscow then backed separatist unrest in the east of Ukraine.

 

The new tightening came in response to the delivery of Siemens' gas turbines to Crimea in violation of EU sanctions, which bar doing business there since Russia's annexation of the peninsula from Ukraine, a move which has not been internationally recognized.
