Other Information: (UK Sanctions List Ref):BEL0109 (UK Statement of Reasons): JSC AGAT - Electromechanical Plant is named as one of a number of Belarusian defence companies on the website of the government authority, The State Authority for Military Industry of the Republic of Belarus (SAMI). JSC AGAT - Electromechanical Plant manufactures the 'Rubezh' (Frontier), a barrier system designed for riot control which was deployed during the demonstrations that have taken place in the wake of the August 9 2020 Presidential elections in Belarus.

Furthermore, JSC AGAT - Electromechanical Plant is named as one of a number of Belarusian defence companies on the SAMI website.

It is therefore reasonable to conclude that JSC AGAT - Electromechanical Plant is responsible for, engaging in, providing support for, and promoting the wider efforts directed by the Belarussian regime to repress civil society and the democratic opposition.
