Russian distributor allegedly continues to deliver Western microelectronics through Germany & Hong Kong to sanctioned companies, incl. cos. comments & non-response

An investigation conducted by RUSI, Nieuwsuur and ARD MONITOR, reveals how Russia’s leading microelectronic distributor, Compel JSC, has imported massive volumes of Western microelectronics through Germany and Hong Kong since the Russian full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

Germany-based WWSemicon GmbH and Hong Kong-based Finder Technology continued to ship microelectronics to Compel in 2023 and even became company’s largest suppliers.

Compel’s customers include commercial enterprises and dozens of sanctioned Russian companies that have extensive links to the country’s defence industry.

The authors of the report received responses from Compel and WWSemicon GmbH.

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre reached out to Finder Technology. The company did not respond.
