After foreign sanctions hit Russia, big companies started stopping the work with the country. But Cisco, one of the biggest and most prestigious companies in the United States managed to provide internet equipment to Russia despite the sanctions that forbid it to do that.

Meanwhile, Cisco officials deny all the accusations. And they stated they didn’t break the sanctions rules in any possible way.

Inside corporate e-mails proved that since the sanctions came into force, Cisco tried very hard to continue deals with Russia. And they found it, though, as one of Cisco’s top-managers said in the letter, it is a ‘risky deal that can affect our reputation’. Since the starting of the financial blocade, Russian tried many different schemes to get Cisco’s products into the country. One of such schemes was about selling internet equipment to Russian FSB (security service), but when sanctions came into force, employees in Russia splited the deal and changed the name of the receiving side to the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Russian Federation. But the real recipient remained the FSB.

The sanctions, applied to Russia are in use since last year, after Russia annexed Crimea and started a war conflict on the East of Ukraine.
