Ukraine identifies 42 foreign components in Russian Kh-59 missiles

Ukraine’s National Agency on Corruption Prevention (NAZK) has expanded its database of foreign components in Russian weapons, adding 42 new details specific to the Russian Kh-59 cruise missile. The agency’s press service announced this update on 5 January.

In December 2023, the NAZK launched 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 highlighted the recent use of these missiles, combined with Shahed kamikaze drones, in Russian attacks. On 4 January 2024, Russia deployed this type of missile in an attack on an energy facility in Kropyvnytskyi, resulting in one death and eight injuries.

A representative from the NAZK emphasized the importance of preventing foreign technologies and components from continuing to be a part of aggressors’ weaponry that causes civilian casualties globally.

NAZK aims to assist in the global effort to enforce sanctions and prevent the proliferation of such weaponry.

“We will continue to regularly update the database so that manufacturers, officials, investigative journalists, as well as concerned citizens from various countries, can unite against the proliferation of technologies to such terrorist regimes as the Russian Federation,” the statement reads.
