Ukraine’s officials have said they are “deeply disappointed” with the decision by the government of Canada to allow the return to Germany of the Nord Stream 1 turbines stream repaired by Siemens.
On Sunday, Siemens Energy announced it will return the turbine as soon as possible.
The company said: “The political export decision is a necessary and important first step for the delivery of the turbine.
“Currently our experts are working intensively on all further formal approvals and logistics.”
“There can be no exceptions when it comes to holding Russia accountable for tens of thousands of murdered Ukrainians, hundreds of thousands of destroyed infrastructure objects, millions of internally displaced persons and refugees, and an undisguised attack on democracy and the rule of law around the world.”
The Ministry has also urged the government of Canada to reconsider its decision.
