The Siemens turbine has not been handed over to the Russian "Gazprom"

The turbine of the German company Siemens Energy, intended for Nord Stream, has not yet been transferred to the Russian side and is located in Germany. Gazprom has its own explanation of why the turbine has not yet been delivered to Russia.

After the scheduled repair of equipment in Canada and its shipment to Germany, Olaf Scholz said that the Russian side could take the turbine, but did not. However, Gazprom claims that the transfer of the turbine to Russia through Germany violates the agreement on the direct supply of this equipment from Canada to the Russian Federation.

In addition, Ottawa should provide additional clarifications on the sanctions against Moscow. Thus, Russia requires guarantees that the subsequent repair of equipment in Canada will not again result in delays with its return for an indefinite period.

Meanwhile, at the moment, Nord Stream is operating at only 20 percent of its capacity, pumping only 33 million cubic meters of gas per day.

In response to the turbine's presence in Germany, Siemens has tweeted out a Spotify playlist that could start with "So Lonely" by the Police.

Comments suggested including Sabaton's 'The Final Solution', The Clash's 'Should I Stay Or Should I Go', Bob Marley & The Wailers 'Waiting In Vain' ("Waiting in vain").

Gazprom did not stand aside and offered on its Twitter page to include the Judas Priest song “Breaking the Law” (“Breaking the Law”) in the playlist.

    Damn, can't the country in which the Arkhip Lyulka Design Bureau works build a turbine that runs on natural gas?

      Dear, we have produced, are producing and will continue to produce turbines, and of different types and capacities. At that time, we did not have such power, well, God bless her, it was possible to put two instead of one.
      BUT! These turbines are located at the exit from our country, further Europe. With a high degree of probability, this is their Wishlist. This is related to certification, etc. etc.
      In general, what they fought for, they ran into something, they themselves are to blame!

            No, I'm talking about Russia, which has mastered the production of pumping units of small and medium power, but cannot develop a high-power gas turbine unit.

      corrupt officials, the fifth column, in order to destroy domestic turbine building, bought a turbine from Siemens in three ways .... now they need to be replaced with LMZ and Taganrog or Ural Rybinsk turbines, or it will be possible soon with Kharkov ones

        It happens that even officials who are eager to remove the margin from any transaction turn out to be nothing to do with it ...
        In this case too.
        German turbines in the gas pipeline network, this is part of the global gas deal, the terms of the EU and Germany.

    And I liked the songs. Shnurov also has many songs about the current situation.
