REPORT: RUSSIAN WEAPONS CONTAINING COMPONENTS PRODUCED BY COMPANIES BASED IN EUROPE AND THE US

A report in May 2022 from Conflict Armament Research says that between 17 and 22 May 2022, a Conflict Armament Research (CAR) field investigation team physically documented recently manufactured advanced weapon systems and communications equipment that the Russian Federation used in its war against Ukraine.  This showed that each of these items contains components that were produced by companies based in Europe and the US.  70 different manufacturers produced the components, and many of these were manufactured after 2014, when the war in eastern Ukraine first began – some were produced as recently as 2020.
