The ambassadors from 28 EU countries have agreed to introduce sanctions against four Russian individuals and three legal entities over the Siemens turbines scandal, a diplomatic source in the EU Council has told, Axar.az reports citing on Tass news agency.

This decision now has to be approved by the EU Council. After that it will be published in the European Union’s Official Journal and take effect.

The German corporation Siemens on July 21 said it was suspending supplies of energy equipment to Russian companies because, it claimed, four gas turbines provided for a power plant in Taman had been eventually moved to Crimea in defiance of EU sanctions.

Russian Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov earlier said Russia had strictly observed the legal aspects of using Siemens technologies in manufacturing turbines for Crimean power plants. He said the power plants in Simferopol and Sevastopol would be equipped with turbines manufactured in Russia with the use of some foreign elements. The turbines have a Russian certificate, Manturov said.
