Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly says that Russian President Vladimir Putin is playing games with G7 countries over energy exports to Europe.
“We called his bluff. It is now clear that Putin is weaponizing energy flows to Europe. The world sees through his game and that’s why we decided to make sure we took a strong stance and a difficult decision by sending back the turbine directly to Germany,” Joly said during a news conference alongside her German counterpart, Annalena Baerbock, in Montreal on Wednesday.
Canada issued a special sanctions permit that allowed the import, repair and re-export of up to six Russian turbines in a bid to help Germany as it struggles with energy supply.
Russia has claimed that the turbine Canada returned to Germany wasn’t properly repaired and lacks the proper paperwork.
