US Can Halt Russia’s Imports of Smartphones as Sanctions Measures

US officials discuss measures against Russia in case “it invades Ukraine” and consider halting the country’s ability to import smartphones, aircraft and automobile parts, as well as other key materials from other sectors. The officials announced their intentions to consult with major partners in Europe and Asia that may be impacted by these measures. 

The United States would use extraordinary export control measures to prevent Russia from importing industrial and consumer technologies, which could have a big impact on Russian consumers, industrial operations and employment, the report said.

Tensions around Ukraine have been aggravated by an alleged Russian troop buildup near the Ukrainian border and US claims of Russia’s preparations for an invasion into the neighbouring country. Russian officials have repeatedly denied all the accusations, pointing to NATO’s military activity near Russian borders, specifying that Russia has the right to move forces within its own territory.
