MOSCOW, September 5. /TASS/. The European Union’s General Court in Luxembourg will consider on September 13 a suit of Russia’s Almaz-Antey arms manufacturer concerning the unlawfulness of the introduction of sanctions against the company, the company’s press service told reporters on Monday.
Last spring, Almaz-Antey filed an appeal against the European sanctions that were imposed on it in July and September, 2014.
"The suit consideration is scheduled for September 13, 2016. German lawyers, defending the interests of the Russian company will take part in the meeting on the side of the plaintiff," the report says.
The press service added that Taylor Wessing partnership members of which are also involved in the proceedings and negotiations in the interests of Almaz-Antey are providing the legal assistance to the company.
The Almaz-Antey’s legal support directorate said that the EU Council’s decision on the inclusion of the Russian company in the sanction lists violates the legal norms and principles of the European Union because there is no evidence and proper justification of the company’s involvement in the efforts to destabilize the situation in Ukraine.
