Ukraine’s National Agency on Corruption Prevention (NAZK) has created the world’s first open global inventory detailing foreign components utilized in Russian and Iranian missiles, drones, electronic warfare systems, and other military equipment, the agency announced.
“Russian weapons are highly dependent on foreign components. It’s time to demilitarize the Russian Federation and stop the supply of components for the weaponry of the aggressor country!” NAZK statement reads.
The War and Sanctions portal currently features a list of over 2000 components that Russia and Iran utilize in various missiles, UAVs, electronic warfare systems, and numerous other forms of weaponry and military technology.
“Thousands of electronics intended for peaceful aims become murder weapons in Russia and Iran’s hands,” agency head Oleksandr Novikov said.
“Exposing their path is a massive task, now aided by making this information public for journalists, officials, and all pursuing justice to investigate supply chains and accountability.”
The database resulted from extensive evidence gathering by various Ukrainian security, military, and police agencies, despite casualties and obstacles, the agency emphasized. Research teams, though targeted themselves, provide analytical support.
On 5 December, Russia and Iran signed a declaration aimed at countering sanctions imposed by the West.
