European Union sanctions against Russian Federation over Siemens turbines violate intl law - energy ministry

Germany and US oppose bid to isolate Qatar
Siemens had created a task force team in early July to investigate reports about the alleged transfer of turbines produced by Siemens Gas Turbines Technologies, a joint venture with the Russian Power Machines company, to the Crimean peninsula. The move means that a total of 153 people and 40 entities like companies have been sanctioned over Russia's destabilization of Ukraine. It said Topor-Gilka led negotiations with Siemens to acquire the gas turbines that eventually were illegally diverted to Crimea.
Russia said on Saturday the European Union's decision to sanction a Russian deputy energy minister over the delivery of Siemens' turbines to Moscow-annexed Crimea was politically motivated and illegal.
The US, the European Union, and other Western nations have imposed sanctions on Russian Federation over both the annexation of the Crimea and the insurgency in Ukraine's Donbass which the West deems to be instigated and supported by Moscow. Diplomats in Brussels said the Russian energy ministry official is involved in bilateral cooperation with Italy and has since escaped being sanctioned. "And so be it until the full restoration of sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, including Crimea!" he wrote on Facebook.

On July 28, Moscow announced countermeasures in response to the U.S. sanctions bill and to the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomatic staff from the United States in late 2016.
The Russian Ministry of Energy slammed the recent decision of the European Commission to broaden its sanctions, blacklisting more individuals and firms accused of delivering Siemens gas turbines to Russia's Crimea peninsula.
The ministry called it an "unfriendly and unjustified" move and said Moscow reserves the right to institute reciprocal measures, according to RT.
