EU Sanctions Russian Deputy Minister, Others In Siemens Case

Donald Trump is no friend of Ukraine

The EU 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.

European Union member states had until late on August 4 to object to the new sanctions.

The EU first introduced sanctions on Russian Federation 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 EU said the blacklisted companies include Siemens' two Russian contractors that moved the turbines. The move means that a total of 153 people and 40 entities like companies have been sanctioned over Russia's destabilization of Ukraine.

"As part of its non-recognition policy, the Council has prohibited the supply of key equipment for infrastructure projects in Crimea and Sevastopol in important sectors, including gas turbines in the energy sector", it elaborated. The plants have been partially built, but have been created to operate with gas turbines made by a Siemens subsidiary.

Gas turbines are a "substantial element" in the development of new power plants, the council said.

The additions contribute to the existing blacklist of 150 people and 37 firms subject to asset freezes and a travel ban to European countries.

Three companies, including Technopromexport, were also targeted by the new sanctions.

In mid-July, Germany's flagship manufacturing firm Siemens suspended cooperation with Russian state companies following reports that its electricity turbines were delivered to Crimea in violation of European Union sanctions.

On July 28, Moscow announced countermeasures in response to the USA sanctions bill and to the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomatic staff from the United States in late 2016.
