At the G7 Hiroshima Summit on the 19th, the G7 Hiroshima Summit called for "strengthening cooperation to prevent third parties from supplying weapons to Russia" in a statement on Ukraine. Western media reported on the 19th that Russia has continued to procure equipment by circumventing the sanctions net after the start of the invasion in February last year.

Sanctions against Russia, discussion to block loopholes in China's mind, prevent circumvention of the embargo - G7

The Financial Times reported that the Russian private military company Wagner procured 20,000 helmets from China in December last year through an affiliated company. The total amount is 2 million dollars (about 276 million yen). According to US government estimates, about 10,000 Wagner fighters were killed in Bakhmut, Donetsk Oblast, eastern Ukraine.

A trading company in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, which exported the product, claims that it is for games. Wagner founder Prigogine said he had never heard of the name. Affiliates were also involved in sanctions evasion supplies to Wagner fighters in Africa.

On the other hand, German magazine Der Spiegel and others have revealed in investigative reports that Kazakhstan in Central Asia was a stopover point for the supply of Chinese-made drones. A Russian company has set up a local subsidiary in Kazakhstan and purchased drones from DJI in Shenzhen, Guangdong province.

Russia also procured $18 million worth of semiconductors via Kazakhstan. According to Spiegel, it was sourced from Germany and included "Fujitsu semiconductors." Semiconductors are also needed for demining.
