Swiss Company Supplies Russia With High-Tech Camouflage Netting, Despite Sanctions

NATO and Russia Continue To Hold Dueling Military Drills
How Did Russian Television Report on Nemtsov's Murder?

In the largest-ever sale of Swiss military equipment to Russia, a Swiss company has sent 85 million euros worth of high-tech camouflage netting designed to thwart radar and infra-red detection.

France 24 reports:

The contract was signed in August 2014, before Bern decided to mirror EU sanctions against Russia, Swiss economic policy spokesman Fabian Maienfisch told the ATS news agency, confirming press reports.

Maienfisch declined to name either the civilian Russian buyer or the Swiss supplier.

That the purchaser is a civilian is interesting, especially if any of these nets show up outside of Russia, like in Ukraine or in the hands of Kremlin allies.
