U.S.-led sanctions are forcing Russia to use computer chips from dishwashers and fridges in some military tools, Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo mentioned Wednesday.

“We have reports from Ukrainians that when they find Russian military equipment on the ground, it’s filled with semiconductors that they took out of dishwashers and refrigerators,” Raimondo advised a Senate listening to, noting that she just lately met with Ukraine’s prime minister.
