China Reduces Trade With Russia

From September 1, the Chinese Ministry of commerce imposes restrictions on the export of equipment and drones

Control by the country will concern even civilian manufacturers of UAVs. The Chinese authorities will control the sale of lasers, equipment, engines for drones, systems for disabling UAVs, and communication equipment. Such restrictions are introduced so that the products are not exploited for military purposes by other countries. Restrictions will apply to demons that can be reassembled to strike. According to the adopted law, these roads can be in the air for more than half an hour, weigh at least 7 kg and carry loads.

"China's expansion of drone control this time is an important measure to demonstrate our position as a responsible large country, to implement global security initiatives and maintain peace around the world," the Chinese Ministry of commerce said.

Politico reported that China, during the war, sold unmanned aerial vehicles to Russia. According to a study on the sale of drones, Chinese companies received at least $100 million. At the same time, the largest Chinese drone manufacturer DJI strictly complies with laws and regulations. Ukraine receives from DJI components for the functioning of Ukrainian drone manufacturers.
