❗️Gazprom refused to take the turbine from Germany
Gazprom will not take the Nord Stream turbine from Germany, which is ready for shipment after repairs in Canada.
The return of the unit for the Portovaya compressor station, the absence of which in the Russian Federation was called the reason for the sharp decline in supplies to Europe, is “impossible,” the Russian company said. The reason is the sanctions of the US, the EU and the UK, as well as the “inconsistency of the current situation with the current contractual obligations on the part of Siemens,” according to a statement published by Gazprom.
Sent for repair to the other end of the Atlantic and returned to Germany after intergovernmental negotiations, the turbine is ready for shipment, there are no obstacles from the German side for this,” German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Wednesday. According to him, there is permission from Germany, the EU, the UK, Canada.
Refusal will hit the income of the Russian Federation.
