-Ukrainian diaspora urges Trudeau not to return turbine to Russia

Moscow says equipment, which was being repaired in Canada, was crucial to restore gas supplies to Germany
The office of Canada’s prime minister, Justin Trudeau, had no comment but a government source said the Ukrainian government itself opposed the turbine’s return.
Canada’s Ukrainian community has urged the prime minister, Justin Trudeau, to refuse to compromise the country’s sanctions against Russia in order to return a turbine that Moscow says is critical for supplying natural gas to Germany.

Russia’s state-controlled Gazprom cut the capacity along the Nord Stream 1 pipeline to just 40% of usual levels last month, citing the delayed return of equipment being serviced by Germany’s Siemens Energy in Canada.

Canada has one of the world’s biggest Ukrainian diasporas outside of countries that border Ukraine and it has successfully pressured Ottawa to impose increasingly strict sanctions against Russia since it invaded Ukraine in February.
The Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) national president, Alexandra Chyczij, urged Trudeau, in a letter on Wednesday, to see through Russia’s “obvious ploy” to divide Ukraine’s allies.

Ottawa should instead broker a solution that does not involve waiving sanctions, she wrote in the letter, posted on UCC’s website.

“Any waiver of Canadian sanctions would be viewed as a capitulation to Russian blackmail and energy terrorism, and would only serve to embolden the Russian terrorist state,” Chyczij said.

In an interview, the UCC’s CEO, Ihor Michalchyshyn, said the group was acting independently and not receiving direction from Kyiv regarding lobbying Ottawa about the turbine.

The Canadian government has not responded to the UCC’s letter, he said.

“We have not gotten reassurance of anything, either way,” Michalchyshyn said. “That’s why we’re quite concerned.“

A Canadian government source said the Ukrainian government itself opposes the turbine’s return.

Trudeau’s office had no immediate comment on the letter.

“We will not stop imposing severe costs on the Putin regime while their unjustifiable invasion is ongoing and we will continue to support our European friends and allies,” said Ian Cameron, spokesman for Canada’s natural resources minister, in a statement.

The Russian embassy in Ottawa said Russia had no role to play in returning the turbine.

“It is a problem between Canada and Germany,” the embassy said in a statement. “We would welcome the release of the turbine which could help to restore gas flow to Europe.“

The technical problem with the turbine is merely a Russian pretext, the German economy minister, Robert Habeck, said last week.

Canada, alongside its western allies, has issued sweeping sanctions on Russia after Moscow sent troops into Ukraine in what the Kremlin calls a “special military operation”.
I write from Ukraine, where I’ve spent much of the past six months, reporting on the build-up to the conflict and the grim reality of war. It has been the most intense time of my 30-year career. In December I visited the trenches outside Donetsk with the Ukrainian army; in January I went to Mariupol and drove along the coast to Crimea; on 24 February I was with other colleagues in the Ukrainian capital as the first Russian bombs fell.

This is the biggest war in Europe since 1945. It is, for Ukrainians, an existential struggle against a new but familiar Russian imperialism. Our team of reporters and editors intend to cover this war for as long as it lasts, however expensive that may prove to be. We are committed to telling the human stories of those caught up in war, as well as the international dimension. But we can’t do this without the support of Guardian readers. It is your passion, engagement and financial contributions which underpin our independent journalism and make it possible for us to report from places like Ukraine.

If you are able to help with a monthly or single contribution it will boost our resources and enhance our ability to report the truth about what is happening in this terrible conflict.

Thank you.
