Moscow's Arbitration Court refused to satisfy German firm Siemens' lawsuit against JSC Technopromexport, affiliated to the Russian Rostec State Corporation, on the return of gas turbines which were allegedly supplied in breach of EU sanctions on the Crimean peninsula. The judgment was announced from the Russian capital on Thursday. The court also rejected a counter lawsuit filed by... Еще Technopromexport on invalidating some provisions of the contract with Siemens, which prohibit the supply of turbines to the Crimea, bypassing the EU sanctions. Germany's Siemens accuses the Russian engineering company of an alleged illegal transfer of four power turbines to Crimea, which had been delivered in the Russian city of Taman. The sanctions imposed by the EU following Russia's reunification with Crimea in 2014, prohibit the German company to sell its turbines to Crimea's Atomic Power Station. Siemens demanded to seize the turbines and render deals on turbine sales invalid. Earlier, the same court rejected Siemens' request over the gas turbines confiscation and banning of their set-up. Technopromexport considers Siemens' claim to be politically motivated that seeks to implement the sanctions imposed by EU.
