Wow these Galactic Empire sanctions are really serious!
Also reminder that any operation performed in dollar falls under the purview of US american courts, so you better not trade in dollar anywhere anytime lest you want to look at a travel interdiction, extradition order or light droning ("executing anywhere anytime", a diplomacy push by President Bushbama)

I thought the sanctions were lifted
Didn't the sanctions against Iran finish in January last year?

Damned if you do...

Aren't sanctions wonderful!
When Russia opened up the sheer amount of Computer kit that came our of the woodwork was astonishing. We fould literally hundreds of DEC PDP-11 and VAX systems all over the place.
Yes, there were sanctions in place but... you get to know a man who knows a man who has a brother who... etc.
Not all of it was Stolen either. One system was supposed to be in Brazil turned up in Baikonour
Re: Aren't sanctions wonderful!
Yup Coca-Cola is pretty easy to buy in Cuba, despite the sanctions. And most of the computers I saw were running Windows.
What, like batteries, for Haw....er...cars?
Let's hope Bezos gets strung up more than Chris Tappin was.
