United States Sanctions Deepcool For Supporting Russian War Effort!

The United States Department of State has confirmed the imposition of sanctions on Beijing DeepCool Industries, a manufacturer of PC cooling solutions, cases, and power supplies. The company allegedly supplied Russian companies with over $1 million dollars worth of Common High Priority (CHPL) items that can assist Russia's war efforts against Ukraine. DeepCool has reportedly sold goods to Aktsionernoe Obshchestvo Taskom, a freight transportation company, and OOO Novyi Ai Ti Project, which manufactures computers, memory devices, and information security equipment supporting Russia's wartime efforts. The sanctions will prohibit all US firms from conducting business with Beijing DeepCool Industries, potentially forcing the US based operations of DeepCool to cease all activities. It could lead to American retailers discontinuing DeepCool products and prevent DeepCool from providing after sales support to its existing customers.
