The Canadian side – noting the sanctions against Russia, Delays the return of the turbine by several months. However, experts doubt whether the correct continuation of Nord Stream 1 depends on this part. An expert in “Bild” explained: “Germany can also be supplied with gas safely from existing turbines. But Gazprom does not want this for political reasons.” The German government has a similar view. A spokeswoman for the German Economy Ministry confirmed in a statement to the newspaper that Germany wants to deliver the turbine to Russia as quickly as possible. She noted that “the export of turbines from Canada to Germany, and later also from Germany to Russia, complies with European sanctions, and gas is not currently subject to sanctions in the European Union.”
However, as Bild has learned, there are still major problems when it comes to moving the part in question. “First, Gazprom does not seem interested in returning the turbines officially owned by the company, (…) and therefore slows down rather than speeding up the process” – the newspaper notes that the Canadian side “does not seem ready to send the turbines out of the country”. The reason is strong pressure from the Ukrainian government. President Volodymyr Zelensky said it would be “totally unacceptable” for Canada to deliver the turbines to Germany.
Moreover, even if the turbines were delivered to Russia after all the turmoil, “there will be no certainty that Gazprom will install them” – the newspaper emphasizes.
