Employees of the SBU discovered in the Kirovograd region the mechanism of export to the “aggressor country” of a chemical used in Russia in the production of military equipment, reports press office departments.
According to the press service, law enforcement officers identified a private enterprise, which “carried out a number of operations” to transport to Russia “a semiconductor alloy of single-crystal gallium arsenide in the form of calibrated ingots”. The cargo on the territory of the Russian Federation arrived at the warehouse of a specially created intermediary enterprise and then went to one of the Russian instrument design bureau.
In the future, this chemical was used to create a "modernized radar unit", which is installed on the Buk air defense missile system and the Pantsir-S1 rocket and gun complex, the release says.
The ministry explained that these complexes are in service with the Russian army and are supplied to the self-proclaimed republics of Donbass.
