The original article is in Russian, the Google-translated version is a tough read, but you'll be able to make out enough to make your hair stand up on the back of your neck.

There are four contractors named in the story: Amesys (of Bull SA, France), Narus (of Boeing, USA), VASTech SA (South Africa) and ZTE (China). How on Earth did you come up with the title "European firms ..." ?? I hate to say, but you confirm some ugly stereotypes about Americans' awareness of the world beyond their borders. (BTW, the WSJ story is a rare free one - no pay wall.)

Never let someone who says it cannot be done interrupt the person who is doing it.
