Earlier, the German government stated that the move by Moscow, which, contrary to the contracts, brought the turbines of Siemens from Russia to occupied Crimea, will lead to further deterioration of relations between the two countries.
Russia in turn said that the power plants which received the turbines would be launched, as planned, in 2018.
Crimea is subject to EU sanctions on energy equipment since Russia annexed the peninsula in 2014.
