On October 28, 2022, a photo was released by the Russian Ministry of Defense that showed a Ka-52 helicopter of the Russian Air Force firing missiles at an unknown target in Ukraine. The image was taken from a video and was credited to the Press Service of the Russian Ministry of Defense and The Associated Press.

In Montreal, Russian-Canadian Kristina Puzyreva pleaded guilty to involvement in a multi-million dollar scheme to send electronics to Russia for military use in the war against Ukraine. The 32-year-old admitted her role in helping ship parts used in unnamed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and guided missile systems, which violated export and sanctions laws. Court documents reveal that Puzireva resided in Montreal.

This case highlights the international nature of the conflict and underscores the need for strong export control laws and sanctions to prevent technology transfer that could be used in military operations. Further details on this case are expected to be released at a later date.
