Following Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine, the Government legislated to prohibit UK exports to Russia of controlled dual-use technology and many critical industry goods. The Government continues to review licence applications for the export of dual-use equipment and assess the risk that these items will be diverted to an undesirable end-user or for an undesirable end-use. We continue to work with international partners to tighten export controls; to broaden, deepen and sharpen our collective sanctions; and to limit Russia’s ability to circumvent restrictions.
