ESSEN, Germany, April 30 (Reuters) - Germany's largest utility E.ON has felt no impact on its business in Russia, its chief executive said, after Europe and the United States broadened sanctions on the country over the ongoing crisis in Ukraine earlier this week.

"I can tell you that our working relationship with our Russian partners continues to be good," Johannes Teyssen told shareholders in a speech on Wednesday, adding it was a weak rouble that impacted earnings in Russia last year.

Teyssen also said that its business in Turkey came under pressure from a weak lira, adding this was not "dramatic for a long-time investor like us". (Reporting by Christoph Steitz; Editing by Victoria Bryan)
