WASHINGTON ― A White House official said Tuesday Russia’s sanctions-struck defense industry is creating an “opportunity” for U.S. and western defense firms to take a bite of Moscow’s share of the market.

“As a practical matter, countries that have had to rely on Russian equipment are going to find it very difficult to get even basic supplies from Russia’s defense industrial base,” Cara Abercrombie, the National Security Council’s coordinator for defense policy and arms control, told attendees of industry conference ComDef. “It is an opportunity, certainly for industry members in the room. It is an opportunity for the United States to provide the support that these countries need.”
