SCHERBINKA, August 31. /TASS/. The Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade does not see risks of cooperating with Siemens in railway machine-building due to a scandal related to supplies of gas turbines to Crimea, Deputy Minister Georgy Kalamanov told reporters on Thursday.
"The Ministry of Industry and Trade definitely has no concerns. We hope cooperation will develop," the official said.
It was reported earlier Siemens initiated checks of Russian partners in construction of power plants in terms of compliance with EU export rules and temporarily suspended power equipment deliveries under already made contracts because of deliveries of four turbines to Crimea.
Further to energy projects, Siemens is cooperating with Russia in the transport sector.
