RWR Publishes Report on the Risk Exposure of Russian Defense Companies behind the Atrocities in Syria

On Octo­ber 12, 2016, RWR Advi­so­ry Group pub­lished a com­pre­hen­sive report cov­er­ing the Risk Expo­sure of Russ­ian Defence Com­pa­nies behind the Atroc­i­ties in Syr­ia. This delves into the West­ern intel­li­gence, NGO, and media reports cov­er­ing the attacks by the Russ­ian mil­i­tary and the alleged war crimes tak­ing place, includ­ing the specifics of the Russ­ian weapons sys­tems being used to car­ry out these attacks and the iden­ti­ty of their Russ­ian man­u­fac­tur­ers. This expo­sure should be trou­bling for for­eign busi­ness part­ners and cus­tomers of these weapons man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pa­nies. Russ­ian arms busi­ness and weapons man­u­fac­tur­ing hit a near $15 bil­lion in 2015, play­ing a major part in the Russ­ian econ­o­my and boast­ing dozens of for­eign client coun­tries. This report takes a hard look at these clients and these trans­ac­tions, using the RWR Intel­trak tool to track trans­ac­tion his­to­ry between clients and the var­i­ous Russ­ian mil­i­tary actors exposed in these reports.
