The US Commerce Department on Friday added 42 Chinese companies to a government export control list over their support for Moscow’s military and defense industrial base – support that includes the supply of US-origin integrated circuits.

The circuits include microelectronics that Russia uses for precision guidance systems in missiles and drones launched against civilian targets in Ukraine, the Commerce Department said in a statement.

Another 7 entities from Finland, Germany, India, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom were also added to the trade export control list.

“Today’s additions to the Entity List provide a clear message: if you supply the Russian defense sector with US-origin technology, we will find out, and we will take action,” said Assistant Secretary for Export Enforcement, Matthew Axelrod.

“The United States should immediately correct its wrong practices and stop its unreasonable suppression of Chinese companies,” stated China’s Ministry of Commerce.

Companies are added to the U. Entity List when Washington deems them a threat to US national security or foreign policy. Suppliers must then be granted generally hard-to-get licenses before shipping goods to entities on the list.

With more than 20 months gone by since Russia invaded Ukraine, a Russian missile strike recently in a village in northeastern Ukraine on Thursday killed at least 52 people, in one of the deadliest attacks yet.
