Huawei in Russia – level 3

12-06-2019 07:00

The US government blacklisted Huawei as a threat to national security, but the Russian government made a deal with the company to develop the new network in its country.

Difficult words: launch (build, start), blacklist (ban, put an embargo on), strike–struck (achieve, successfully come to).
