EE: Russia ‘excuses’ Gazprom’s Nord Stream 1 turbine arguments

At the same time, a representative of the Commission reminded that the EU has adopted six packages of sanctions against Russia, based on the developments in Ukraine.

“Excuses” and “mistakes” characterized Gazprom’s arguments regarding the impossibility of delivering natural gas through NordStream1, the representative of the European Commission, Eric Mamer.

Asked about this during today’s press briefing in Brussels, Eric Mamer emphasized that no EU sanctions package against Russia prohibits the return and installation of the Siemens turbine in Russia.

“Nothing prohibits the return and installation of the Siemens turbine in Russia. Anything else said on the subject is simply and plainly wrong. “What Russia is saying is basically an excuse not to supply gas to the EU,” Eric Mamer said. He also noted that the President of the Commission has repeatedly underlined the “blackmail” on the part of Moscow regarding the supply of energy to the EU.

Besides, the representative of the Commission reminded that the EU has adopted six packages of sanctions against Russia, based on the developments in Ukraine.

The goal is to keep up the pressure on Russia as long as this war lasts. “In terms of energy, the EU has adopted a series of decisions that affect various types of Russian fossil fuels, such as coal and oil, but natural gas is not on the table and we do not want to speculate about possible future sanctions,” he added.
