Taiwan further restricts the sale of modern chips to Russia and Belarus


The Russian invasion of Ukraine shows no sign of ending anytime soon. Punishing sanctions haven’t deterred Russia from its brutal war of aggression. These sanctions include denying Russia the use of advanced semiconductors, which it could use in support of its war. Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) has announced a new list of technology items that are now banned from sale to Russia and its close ally, Belarus.

According to Digitimes (opens in new tab) (via The Register (opens in new tab)) the bans include pretty much any kind of processor made in the last 30 years. This means that Russia will find it increasingly difficult to source chips for its war operation, but beyond that, even chips for common items like smartphones, consumer electronics and vehicles will be difficult to attain.
