Cisco bypassed Russia sanctions to continue sales: report
Cisco reportedly skirted sanctions in order to sell networking equipment to Russia’s military.
In an investigative piece published this week, Buzzfeed alleges Cisco knowingly sold gear through straw companies fronting for Russian government and military institutions in violation of American sanctions. Cisco denies any wrongdoing and any knowledge of the scheme, allegedly perpetrated by its Russian operations, according to Buzzfeed.
Cisco says some of the bogus customer names were errors, Buzzfeed reports.
