The Moscow arbitration court has satisfied in full the statement of a member of the rostec company «VO «Technopromexport» (TPE) to recover from the Russian «daughter» Siemens 80.4 thousand dollars of court costs in the case of delivered turbines Crimea, the correspondent of RIA Novosti news from the courtroom.

The application was filed in October in the framework of the case on the suit of OOO «Siemens gas turbine technology» (STGT, 65% owned by Siemens, 35% — «Power machines»), in which the plaintiff demanded to recognize the illegal your turbine supply agreement with JSC «VO «Technopromexport» (JSC TPE, the structure of «Rostec») from March 10, 2015, and to require four gas turbines from illegal possession, OOO TPE.

Arbitration courts of three instances completely rejected the demands of STGT. The courts, in particular, came to the conclusion that the claim would be prejudicial to the sovereignty of Russia. As noted in the decision of arbitration of Moscow, the consequence of the satisfaction of claims would be a de jure application in Russia of economic sanctions of the EU, which «clearly would contravene the principles of public order of the Russian Federation detrimental to the sovereignty of the state».

The courts have also considered unproven the plaintiff’s arguments that the disputed contract was concluded under influence of deception on the part of JSC TPE, which allegedly was originally going to put the turbine is not in Krasnodar Krai and the Crimea. Russia’s Supreme court in October dismissed the appeal of STGT in which the plaintiff asked to review the case.

The representative of the company TPE said Monday in court that the amount of expenses due to the hourly cost of the services law offices of EMP, representing the interests of defendants and complexity of the trial. The representative of the «daughter» Siemens acknowledged the costs, but considered them overpriced. In his words, reasonable and justified would be the recovery of legal costs in the amount of about 200 thousand rubles. In accordance with Russian procedural law, the prevailing party shall be entitled to claim recovery of their litigation costs from the losing party.

The Supreme court also rejected another appeal in cassation Siemens STGT and to court decisions of three lower courts, Siemens failed to claim parallel to the structures of «Rostec» for the supply of turbines for construction in Crimea of thermal power plants. In that case the plaintiffs demanded to recognize the illegal two deals with the delivery of the turbines between the STGT and JSC Technopromexport and JSC between TPE and TPE, and also to apply consequences of their invalidity in the form of return of turbines the manufacturer is a Russian subsidiary of Siemens.
