The Taiwanese Ministry of Economic Affairs has taken measures to prevent the use of CNC machines in the Russian arms industry.
The Taiwanese Ministry of Economic Affairs has taken measures to prevent the use of CNC machines in the Russian arms industry.

The Taiwanese Ministry of Economic Affairs has responded to allegations that Taiwanese companies sold $20 million worth of CNC machines to Russian arms producers.


These machines, imported to Russia by the company I Machine Technology, are said to have been used in weapons production. In response, the ministry has tightened export controls and blacklisted I Machine Technology.


So far, 1,900 companies have been listed, prohibiting them from receiving precision equipment from Taiwan. Penalties for violations of export guidelines to Russia have been increased more than 15 times to 1 million NT dollars.


Taiwanese manufacturers have been asked to provide assurances that their exports will not be redirected to Russia. The measures were taken in response to concerns that CNC machines from Taiwan could inadvertently end up in the Russian arms industry.
