Setback for Moscow: No Drones from Kazakhstan

The neighboring country of Russia, Kazakhstan, intends to adhere more closely to the sanctions against Russia in the future. Until now, the country has rather benefited from the sanctions.

As reported by the Münchner Merkur, since the beginning of the war, Kazakhstan has been criticized for supplying Russia with a variety of goods, including those that can have dual uses and can be deployed for both military and civil purposes. After the West once again urged the country to comply with the sanctions, Kazakhstan has now banned the sale of 106 goods to the neighboring country.

Country considered a hub for prohibited goods

The banned items include drones, special electronics, microchips, and other war-related products, as stated by Deputy Minister of Trade Kairat Torebayev to the Kazakh news agency Kaztag. Officials from the American Bureau of Industry and Security noted during a visit to Kazakhstan that the country is being used as a hub for prohibited goods. Russian media repeatedly reported that cars, mobile phones, and other goods would reach Russia from Kazakhstan – many people from Russia purchase the goods directly in the neighboring country and then bring them across the border.
