Ukrainian World Congress (UWC), a non-profit organization representing the Ukrainian diaspora, announced that it is suing Canada over the country's decision to return the repaired Russian turbines required for maintenance of the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline to Germany, APA reports citing Tele Trader.
The UWC called Ottawa's move "totally unacceptable" and a "grave mistake with dire consequences." The organization also claimed Canada is breaching of its own sanctions against Russia. "This exemption to the sanctions regime against Russia is totally unacceptable," UWC President and CEO Paul Grod stated. "There are real alternatives to Germany’s gas needs, including buying through Ukraine’s pipeline," he added.
