The National Agency for the Prevention of Corruption (NAPC) has announced that it is launching the world's first open database of foreign components in enemy weapons. This database will be available on the War and Sanctions portal.
According to the Agency's press service, the list already contains more than 2,000 components used by Russia and Iran in various missiles, UAVs, electronic warfare systems and many other types of weapons and military equipment.
According to NAPC head Oleksandr Novikov, "thousands of journalists, investigators, customs officers, bankers, consultants and many others who seek justice and peace are able to track down the route of components from the manufacturer to the occupiers". "Now that this data has become public, everyone can contribute to global peace and security," Novikov added.
The database contains information on the type of weapon, manufacturer and technical specifications.
What is found in downed Russian drones, missiles and aircraft
- For example, the remains of a new Russian missile found in the Zaporizhzhya sector had a foreign chip. According to the head of the Presidential Office, Andriy Yermak, Ukrainian experts continue to investigate foreign components of Russian weapons and pass this information on to partners to prevent the supply of these components to Russia.
- Experts also continue to examine the components of the downed Russian Kh-101 missiles, as well as the Shahed and Kartograph UAVs. Foreign components were also found in them.
- In August 2023, Yermak said that 69% of the components of Russian drones came from Western firms. The McFaul-Yermak International Sanctions Group has examined 174 foreign components removed from three models of UAVs used by the Russians in the war against Ukraine.
