Germany suspends military exports to Russia
(04-24 18:24)

The German government says it isn't authorizing any exports of military goods to Russia at present "because of the current political situation,'' leaving nearly 70 export applications on hold.
The Economy Ministry replied to questions from the opposition Greens that "in critical cases'' the government will also ensure previously authorized exports aren't carried out. The letter, obtained by The Associated Press Thursday, was first reported on by daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung.
The ministry didn't detail which products or companies are affected but said none of the export applications involves "weapons of war'' such as tanks and missiles. It said 69 export applications worth nearly 5.2 million euros were pending.
Last month, Germany said it put on hold a company's deal to deliver the Russian military a field exercise simulator. --AP
