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.
"It means that the turbine delivered to Crimea was produced in Russia. That is all that I can say, we have repeatedly said it," Peskov told reporters, commenting on the reports that Russia delivered to Crimea gas turbines, manufactured by German conglomerate Siemens despite the sanctions regime.
Russian officials have repeatedly stressed that the turbines were Russian-made and not those made by Siemens.
