EU ambassadors intend to discuss extension of sanctions against Russia due to Siemens scandal
Ambassadors of the European Union countries in Brussels on July 26 will discuss the expansion of the sanctions list against the Russian Federation due to the scandal with the turbines of Siemens, the Yevropeiska Pravda edition (the European Truth) reports with reference to Twitter of Radio Liberty's Brussels correspondent Rikard Jozwiak.
"EU ambassadors will on Wednesday discuss whether to add four people on its Russia sanctions list over the wind turbine scandal in Crimea, Ukraine," Jozwiak wrote.
Earlier Reuters reported that Germany called on the European Union to add four more Russian citizens and companies to the sanctions list due to Siemens turbines, Yevropeiska Pravda said.
One European official said that the list could include Russian officials from the Ministry of Energy and a Russian company that transported the turbines.
