vserossiskiy institut aviatsionnykh materialov
The All-Russian Institute Of Aviation Materials (VIAM) is a state research centre of the Russian Federation based in Moscow, Russia, established in 1932. VIAM has broad responsibility for research, development, testing, and certification of all metallic and nonmetallic materials used in the Russian aerospace industry. Over 90 percent of the materials used in Soviet aircraft and space vehicles were developed at VIAM.
The Department of State is also imposing substantial costs on Russia’s defense enterprises by sanctioning 22 defense-related firms (VIAM one of this). These far-reaching sanctions target a wide range of Russian defense enterprises, including entities that develop and produce fighter aircraft, infantry fighting vehicles, electronic warfare systems, missiles, and unmanned aerial vehicles for Russia’s military. These sanctions strike at the core of Putin’s war machine.
