Russian tank-building factory UralVagonZavod Corporation and the Chelyabinsk Tractor Plant have suspended their work, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said in a statement on March 22.

According to the available information, the plants have stopped work due to the lack of foreign-made components. Deliveries of these have been blocked due to sanctions imposed on the aggressor country.

“These companies specialize in the production and repair of tanks and other armored vehicles for the armed forces of the Russian Federation,” the General Staff said.
