COMPONENTS FROM US, ASIA, THE MIDDLE EAST, AND EU IN RUSSIAN DRONES

A report from Conflict Armament Research contains a case study which looks at 6 different Russian-manufactured military unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV – commonly called ‘drones’) that CAR documented in Ukraine.  CAR’s investigations found that the Russian military industry has been obtaining key components for these UAV – such as GPS modules, electronic parts, cameras, and engines – from the US, Asia, the Middle East, and EU, both before and after the start of the conflict in Ukraine in 2014, and despite an EU arms embargo on Russia.
