The German military company Rheinmetall called on the federal government to compensate its losses as result of a prohibited deal with Russia, according to the German newspaper "Süddeutsche Zeitung."
Last year, German Minister for Economic Affairs, Siegmar Gabriel, banned the construction of a military training center in Russia as well as the delivery of all necessary equipment.
The delivery was prohibited at the last minute as a means of pressuring Russia in response to the the events in Ukrainian events. Thus, the German Minister of Economic Affairs went even beyond EU sanctions against Russia, the newspaper writes, causing severe financial damage to the German company.
The group has asked for compensation in the amount of 120 million euros. The application is currently being considered by German authorities.
