European Union blacklists 3 Russian nationals, 3 companies over Siemens turbines to Crimea

The United States and the European Union imposed sanctions against the Crimea after the region of mostly ethnic Russian people voted to break away from Ukraine and rejoin Russia in a 2014 referendum. The sanctions, consisting of an asset freeze and travel ban, now apply to 153 people and 40 entities, the council said.

The German government has expressed anger over the "completely unacceptable" turbine delivery to Crimea and pressed Siemens for answers.

The EU imposed sanctions on Russian Federation three years ago after it annexed Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula, and refuses to recognize Moscow's authority there.

Last month, Siemens said four of its gas turbines, designed for the project in Taman, were illegally delivered to the Crimea by a Russian contractor.

The updated blacklist includes Russian Deputy Energy Minister Andrey Cherezov, the head of the department of operational control and management in Russia's electric power industry Evgeniy Grabchak and state firm Technopromexport CEO Sergey Topor-Gilka.

The three Russian nationals and three companies added to the European Union blacklist over Russia's encroachments against Ukraine were involved in the transfer of the Siemens gas turbines to Crimea, it said.

"Despite Russia's clear statements that there has been no [turbines] transfer, Siemens took another position". "Gas turbines are a substantial element in the development of new power plants".

Company leaders said profit in the April-June period rose despite costs for the merger of its wind power business with Gamesa Corporacion Tecnologica SA. The company said it is re-examining all its Russian contracts as a result.

Other EU measures in place in response to the Ukraine crisis include economic sanctions targeting specific sectors of the Russian economy, now in place until 31 January 2018; and restrictive measures in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol, limited to the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol, now in place until 23 June 2018.

"Note that these sanctions are small-scale, sectoral measures".
