The ninth sanctions package imposes new restrictions on certain dual-use and advanced technologies that can contribute to the technological enhancement of Russia's defence and security sector. The list is e.g. expanded to include drone engines and electronic components found in Russian military systems.
In addition, the list of entities subject to increased dual use and sensitive technologies export restrictions are extended to 168 entities closely linked to the Russian military-industrial complex.
The export ban on aviation and the space industry is expanded to now include aircraft engines and their parts. As the export ban is applicable for both manned and unmanned aircrafts, this ban will de facto entail a ban on export of drone engines to Russia and third countries that could supply such drone engines to Russia.
Furthermore, the restrictions on goods which could contribute to enhancement of Russian industrial capacities have been expanded by including items such as generators, toy drones, hard drives, laptops, IT components, night-vision and radio-navigation equipment, cameras and lenses.
