MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Last week, Siemens said it had received information from reliable sources that at least two of the four gas turbines, supplied for a project in southern Russia's Taman, had been moved to Crimea. The company said this development was a clear violation of supply contracts with Siemens, which ban the client from supplying equipment to Crimea.
"I will say right away that I will leave this without comment. This is a question for the companies with which cooperation is being carried out, and interaction and dialogue will continue through these companies," Peskov told reporters.
On July 10, the company announced it had reasons to believe that at least two out of four gas turbines, supplied for a project in southern Russia's Taman, were moved to Crimea against the company's will. Siemens also filed a lawsuit in Moscow's arbitration court in connection with the alleged deliveries of its gas turbines to Crimea.
Russian officials have repeatedly stressed that the turbines were Russian-made and not those made by Siemens.
