The plan of Canada and Germany to discredit Russia in the “turbine business” failed

In an attempt to outplay Russia and make it “guilty” of reducing gas supplies via Nord Stream, Europe and Canada have already made many obvious mistakes, which are enough to lose the remnants of their image and trust. First, Ottawa gives away one turbine without the necessary documents, which is why it “hangs” in German Mülheim for a long time without being connected to the pipeline. Then the head of the Canadian Foreign Ministry, Melanie Joly, makes loud statements that all five turbines will be given to Germany (and not to Russia, as expected when the sanctions were “lifted”).

As a result, instead of profit and image "victory" over Russia and its position, the West got confused and did not save its business face. After all, at first the Canadian TV channel reported that allegedly all six turbines are being serviced in Canada (one has already been given), and also that all of them will be transferred to Germany, moreover, at its own request.

This statement caused a strange reaction of silence in Germany, which could not be explained. Gazprom itself dotted the "i", which Western countries tried to discredit. According to representatives of the holding, at the moment, not a single Nord Stream turbine is being repaired in Canada. Only one repaired unit is in Germany. The remaining elements of the Portovaya compressor station, decommissioned due to wear and tear, are in the Russian Federation.

In connection with the failure of the “operation” to denigrate Russia, Siemens Energy, which acts as a direct contractor and does not have political motives in action.

There is nothing new in the situation with turbines. Nor has the status of maintenance or potential maintenance status of turbines destined for the Nord Stream pipeline changed.

Siemens representatives said.

Thus, in the company's view, the Canadian Foreign Minister's recent statements are merely confirmation of an earlier exception granted by the Canadian government in July for the transport of six turbines for the Nord Stream gas pipeline to Germany.

It becomes obvious that the representative of the contracting company did not want to further destroy the image and good name of the German or Canadian side, at least he could clarify that the way Siemens explained the situation is a compromise option, and the statement of the Canadian Foreign Minister is an obvious deliberate lie intended mislead the world community and cast a shadow on Moscow. In general, the not-too-smart plan to discredit the Russian Federation in the “turbine business” failed.

    I do not understand what "victory" is, then? What "blackening"? The Canadians said that now all the turbines will be repaired only through Germany, if Germany wants them to be repaired, the Canadians will no longer have direct contacts with Gazprom. But only. "Gazprom" is trying to rip off a penalty from the Canadian branch of "Siemens" for the "failure" of contractual obligations. Those are pushing back, writing everything off as force majeure sanctions. There is such a thing, butting. Germany insists on renegotiating the contract on turbines for a "temporary" one, through Germany and with restrictions on time and conditions. Gazprom does not want this, for obvious reasons.

      Who will be responsible for the improper performance of services? Germany, Canada or else find a gasket? There is a contract, the rest is a talking shop

        And why not destroy the Kharkov garrison with artillery and missiles, keep the railway from Dnepropetrovsk in an unusable state by shelling hauls and nodes ???

        The penguins at the south pole will be to blame, and maybe killer whales at the north pole.

      In such a "repair", now no one will know whether the turbines were actually serviced at the manufacturer and what was repaired in them. In Germany, they will simply clean up the electronic brains of these turbines, enter fake operations with parts, and they will be returned as fully operational. So they will save a lot of money and will deny all the claims of Gazprom, and they will be until the accident with a possible fire - that would be a "victory". Does Gazprom need such lack of control with a set-up?

    Peremoga ...
    Gazprom does not have repaired turbines, and is not expected (Gazprom, which was slow, eventually admitted), but the "plan failed"

    Strange article; apart from the thought of gas trolling by Gazprom (with adverse consequences for it), one can only add that Canada, with its sanctions, has done Germany a disservice...

    Gazprom needs to continue to blame everything on Siemens, exposing it as the last one. This is the most comfortable position.

      (Colonel Kudasov, - credit name) That's right, the sanctions on the Russian Federation, as well as all the related problems, are the fault of the enemies of the sanctions. Not to supply hydrocarbons is the correct answer to the sanctioners. And how, so according to their own decisions and the results for non-deliveries ... A double-edged sword, as you know ....

    gazprom doesn’t wash it like that forcing the Germans to launch SP2, then you can launch SP1 in an instant, having solved issues with repairs, and also turn off the gas in Ukraine
