Russia, China, Included in US Government’s “Do Not Buy” List
The Defense Department’s Ellen Lord revealed this week that the US government has included software and equipment originating from Russia and China in its “Do Not Buy” list.
Lord added that manufacturers from these countries do not not operate in a way that is consistent with US defense standards.
The products and equipment, which were shielded through holding companies, were identified with the help of partners in the intelligence community. However, the names of the manufacturers were not disclosed.
