broadened sanctions

The scandal with turbines supply from German concern Siemens was the reason for tightening of the sanctions pressure. European Union authorities have mentioned that Europe doesn’t accept integration of Crimea to Russia, naming it “unlawful annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol to Russia”.

Let us remind you, EU prohibits to its businessmen any merchant exchanges with Crimea and Sevastopol territories, unless they have Ukrainian certificates. Crimea is subject to EU sanctions on energy equipment for infrastructure projects, including gas turbines. Also Crimea citizens can't get European visas in the consulates located on RF territory.
