Siemens sent the equipment to Canada, where Canada refuses to send the equipment back to Germany as the trade is in breach of sanctions. The equipment is still stuck in Canada and the Nordstream gas pipeline is cut off as a result. Plus other great stories – or not so great. All told with a smile on his face.
