Amid Western sanctions, Russia might be suffering from technology shortage: Reports

WorldRussiaAmid Western sanctions, Russia might be suffering from technology shortage: Reports
From the day till now, it has been six months after Russia called the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, and the nation is now struggling with technology shortage as a result of Western-imposed sanctions. Specifically affecting the efficacy of the Russian arsenal is the inability to access the key microchips.
As per reports, President of Russia Vladimir Putin is reportedly seeking to fill this shortage of high-tech parts. Having fired more missiles than they originally expected, the Russian army must increasingly rely on old stockpiles of Soviet-era ammunition.
The Ukrainian Armed Forces, on the other hand, have benefitted from Western weapons to try and turn the tide in a counter-offensive with precise attacks on ammunition depots and key infrastructure such as bridges.
Meanwhile, Kyiv is well aware that the outcome of the war in Ukraine may depend on whether Russia finds a way to regain access to high-tech chips, and is therefore committed to ensuring that the Russians cannot get their hands on them.
Therefore, Ukraine has released a warning that the Kremlin has prepared “shopping lists” of all kinds of high-tech components, most of which are made by companies in the United States, Germany, the Netherlands, the UK, Taiwan and Japan.
Although the list’s provenance could not be determined, two experts in military supplies would confirm that the list matches Russia’s current military equipment and needs.
