These are special military goods, whose export to Russia amounted to 2.01 million francs, or $2.2 million, last year, said the SECO. Drones and components accounted for the lion’s share - 1.7 million francs, or $1.9 million.
Besides, Moscow imported Swiss smoothbore weapons with less than 20 millimeter caliber or automatic firearms with less than 12.7 centimetre calibre worth 256,400 francs, or $283,000. The rest 38,400 francs, or $42,400, were made up by special training equipment such as shooting simulators.
Swiss export of special military goods to Ukraine, including drones or components, now also banned, totalled about 15,000 francs, or $16,600, last year.
The Swiss government said on Tuesday it would work out additional measures to prevent use of the country’s territory to circumvent the EU anti-Russian sanctions. The economics ministry was thus instructed to work out concrete measures.
Switzerland earlier suspended training of Russian military specialists in its territory and cancelled participation of Russian Knights aerobatic team in a Swiss air show scheduled for late August - early September.
Switzerland also supported five of the six editions of the EU sanction list. The Swiss list comprises 87 individuals and 20 companies. These were not sanctions as such but measures to prevent circumvention of the sanctions, Swiss authorities said.
