A North Korean ballistic missile fired by Russia at Ukraine contained 290 foreign-made microelectronics components.

This was reported by Oleksandr Ruvin, Director of Kyiv Scientific Research Institute of Forensic Expertise (KSRIFE).

"Thus, in only one object, identified as a sample of a North Korean ballistic missile, 290 foreign-made microelectronics components were found. The vast majority of the elements ensure the missile's navigation, they are produced by more than 25 companies headquartered in the United States, China, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Singapore, Switzerland and Taiwan, etc.", - Ruvin said, referring to the report on the study of parts and fragments of enemy missiles and attack drones based on the results of the work of the Institute's specialists with representatives of the British centre for the study of armed conflict “Conflict Armament Research” (CAR).

According to Ruvin, imported microelectronics are the basis of all types of Russian missiles. 

"Thus, the conclusions of Ukrainian and foreign experts show the importance of controlling the export of commercial electronic components and, at the same time, the dependence of the aggressor country, Russia, on foreign technologies," he added. 

He also noted that the study of foreign components in missiles is being carried out to increase sanctions pressure on Russia and provide substantiated evidence of Russia's crimes, which the Ukrainian government will be able to present in the international arena and attract more support for our country from foreign partners. 

"The implementation of appropriate measures significantly affects the reduction of Russia's economic and military potential," Ruvin said.
