US admits ban on chip exports to Russia - media

“The White House has told representatives of the US chip industry to be prepared for new restrictions on exports to Russia”, – Reuters reported, citing sources.

It could be about restricting access to the global electronics market. Semiconductor industry association leaders were warned about the need to be ready for “unprecedented actions against Russia” in case of escalation around Ukraine.

We shall remind you that Moscow has repeatedly denied accusations of “aggressive actions” by the West and Ukraine, saying that it does not threaten anyone and is not going to attack anyone, while statements about “Russian aggression” are used as a pretext to deploy more NATO military equipment near Russia’s borders.

Earlier it was reported that the US may ban imports of smartphones and laptops to Russia
