Steinmeier: German companies will not work with Crimea
German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier said that the German companies will not work with Crimea.
Commenting on the scandal surrounding supplies of Siemens-made gas turbines to Crimea, he said that the German companies will not work with the peninsula, while the controversial situation has disrupted trust between Russian and German businesses.
"Without having accurate information, I can say that the German companies have not worked [with Crimea] and did not invest in Crimea until now. The Siemens case is particularly sensitive, because, apparently, the Russian partners made promises that had not been fulfilled in the end. This fact has broken mutual trust," Sputnik cited Steinmeier as saying.
