European Union extends sanctions against Russian Federation because of Siemens turbines

But Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said he was "grateful" to the EU, calling the sanctions a "powerful message to the aggressor about unwavering unity and solidarity among the capitals of the European Union". The list now includes 153 people and 40 companies or entities.

On July 21, Germany's Siemens company announced that all four of its gas turbines produced for a project in southern Russian Federation had been delivered to Crimea in breach of the agreement. The machines were then illegally sent to a power project and modified locally in Krim, as the Russians call it.

The European Union imposed new sanctions on Russian nationals and companies for diverting gas turbines bought from Siemens to the Crimea region.

"Interference in a dispute between two business entities is a direct violation of global legal norms", the Russian Energy Ministry said in a statement.

"This decision contributes to the establishment of independent power supplies to the Crimea and Sevastopol, which supports their separation from Ukraine and undermines Ukraine's territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence", the report says.

The EU decision to blacklist two Russian Energy Ministry officials is puzzling, while its interference in the dispute between Siemens and Russia's Technopromexport (part of the Rostec Corporation) violates global law, the ministry said in a statement on Saturday. The move follows the transfer of gas turbines to the area.

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

Shortly after the announcement of the new sanctions on Friday, the Russian Foreign Ministry denounced the decision and expressed "deep regret" over the move by Brussels, calling the punitive measures "unfriendly, unjustified and unsubstantiated".
