Quote: "The database already includes more than 2,000 components used by the Russian Federation and Iran in various types of UAVs, missiles, electronic warfare systems and many other types of weapons and military equipment."
"Currently, the database contains information on foreign components found in Russian and Iranian weapons used by the Russian Federation during the full-scale invasion of Ukraine starting on 24 February 2022," the message reads.
"Thousands of electronic components that should improve life and serve development are being turned into murderous weapons by Russia and Iran. Revealing their path from the manufacturer to the hands of the killers is a daunting task for any government agency.
But this is within the power of thousands of journalists, investigators, customs officers, bankers, consultants and many others who seek justice and peace. Now that these data have become public, everyone can make their contribution to global world security," said Oleksandr Novikov, the NACP Head.
The NACP explained that the Foreign components in weapons section will be regularly updated and improved. So, later, they plan to add the option of subscribing to the list update.
