The Moscow Arbitration Court dismissed Siemens appeal on returning gas turbines delivered to Crimea bypassing the EU sanctions, TASS correspondent reported from the courtroom. The court also denied Technopromexport a counterclaim against Siemens
At the same time, representatives of both sides told reporters that they would determine their position regarding possible future appeals against the court’s decision later.
Earlier Siemens asked the court to return the gas turbines sold to Technopromexport and subsequently delivered to Crimea to Siemens Gas Turbines Technologies. “Proceeding from the invalidity of these transactions, we ask the court to oblige the actual purchaser of the equipment – Technopromexport – to return these gas turbine units to their original seller Siemens Gas Turbines Technologies,” the company’s representative elaborated on the claim.
According to a Technopromexport representative, Siemens does not present civil rights violation claims in the lawsuit, but requires compliance with the EU sanctions by returning already supplied equipment.
