Ukraine's military intelligence has obtained evidence of the use of microelectronics produced in the United States in the armaments and military equipment of the occupying country. The American journalist Howard Altman writes about this in The War Zone.

The chips in question were found inside a recovered example of the 9S932-1, a radar-equipped air defense command post vehicle that is part of the larger Barnaul-T system, a Pantsir air defense system, a Ka-52 “Alligator” attack helicopter, and a Kh-101 (AS-23A Kodiak) cruise missile.

Foreign electronic components in the captured enemy technology, once again prove the "effectiveness" of Russia's "import substitution" and emphasize the complete dependence of the aggressor country on Western technology.
