To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, whether her Department has taken recent steps to help ensure that dual use technologies from the UK that have been used by Russia in its war in Ukraine are (a) rapidly identified and (b) prevented from being sent to Russia via intermediary trading.

Following Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine, the Government legislated to prohibit UK exports to Russia of controlled dual-use technology and many critical industry goods. The Government continues to review licence applications for the export of dual-use equipment and assess the risk that these items will be diverted to an undesirable end-user or for an undesirable end-use. We continue to work with international partners to tighten export controls; to broaden, deepen and sharpen our collective sanctions; and to limit Russia’s ability to circumvent restrictions.
