В США запретят дроны DJI — Палата представителей Конгресса приняла соответствующий закон

The US House of Representatives passed a ban on the sale of DJI drones in the US. The Countering CCP Drones Act is part of the annual NDAA legislation that allocates defense spending for the following year.

Drone maker DJI is based in China and controls more than 70% of the global drone market, which US lawmakers see as a threat. 6% of DJI's shares are in the hands of Chinese state-owned companies, which has led to concerns about national security risks and espionage. DJI's success will also strengthen the Chinese economy.

“DJI poses an unacceptable risk to national security, and it's time to rid America of drones made by communist China,” says Congresswoman Elise Stefanik.

Current legislation does not prohibit the use of already purchased DJI drones in the United States, only the sale of DJI products in the United States. However, DJI products are widely used in the US, and the new law may cause concern. The new law must still pass the Senate and receive the president's signature.

Regarding the ban on Chinese goods, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken recently explained: “We are focused only on the most sensitive technologies that may pose a threat to our security. We are not focused on stopping or curbing trade with China.”
