Ukrainian Canadian Congress wants permit revoked as Russian turbine hearings continue

  Ukrainian Canadian Congress wants permit revoked as Russian turbine hearings continue OTTAWA — The Ukrainian Canadian Congress is urging the Canadian government to revoke a permit that allowed the export of a turbine repaired in Montreal to a Russian energy giant. The permit granted Siemens Canada an exemption to sanctions against Russia for two years starting in early July and would allow the company to import and repair up to five more turbines as per their maintenance schedule. The parts would be sent back to Germany for use in Gazprom's Nord Stream 1 pipeline. The pipeline ordinarily supplies natural gas to Germany and other European countries but is currently shut down, with the Russian state-controlled company blaming problems on a gas leak.

The situation in terms of radiation in Zaporijia, the largest nuclear power plant in Europe, remains normal, also said the ministry. According to Moscow, two Ukrainian bombing incidents were recorded near the plant on Saturday.

A spokesperson for the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has denied that the Ukrainian forces have bombed near the plant.

Russia and Ukraine have repeatedly accused of targeting Zaporijia, in the south of Ukraine.

The UN International Atomic Energy Agency adopted a resolution demanding that Russia ends its occupation of the power station.
