US takes further action to limit technology exchange with Russia for military purposes

Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022, the U.S. and more than 30 other countries have imposed sanctions to limit Russia’s access to Western technology. Despite these efforts, American components have been discovered in Russian weapons left on the battlefield in Ukraine.

In recent weeks, the Commerce Department has sent warning letters to at least 20 American companies as part of ongoing efforts to impede Russia’s war efforts in Ukraine. These companies produce and sell products commonly found in missiles and drones recovered in Ukraine. Assistant Secretary Matthew Axelrod stated that letters were sent to over 20 American companies, each containing a list of over 600 foreign parties, requesting them to voluntarily cease shipments to these parties due to a significant risk of transshipment to Russia.

The U.S government is urging American companies to halt shipments to over 600 foreign parties due to concerns that the goods could be diverted to Russia for use in its invasion of Ukraine. Senior U.S officials from the Commerce, State, and Treasury departments have been communicating directly with leaders of U.S companies to explore additional measures that can be taken to prevent their products from reaching Russia. The goal is to further hinder Russia’s ability to wage war by cutting off the supply of critical components and materials necessary for their military operations.

Axelrod also mentioned that despite the ongoing efforts, Russian authorities continue their illicit activities such as sanctions evasion, procurement of prohibited technologies and materials from Western countries through third-party countries.

In conclusion, the U.S government is taking steps
