Two men in the US state of Kansas have been arrested on suspicion of illegally sending aviation technology to Russia.
Cyril Gregory Buyanovsky, 59, and Douglas Robertson, 55, owned and operated the KanRus Trading Company.
The two conspired to skirt US export laws to sell sophisticated aviation equipment to Russia, says the US Department of Justice.
If convicted, they face a maximum of 20 years in prison for exporting controlled goods without a license.
They are also charged with conspiracy, falsifying and failing to file electronic export information, and smuggling goods contrary to US law.
Prosecutors said the two had since 2020 sought to evade US export laws, misstating the value and end destination of shipments by routing them through third-party countries. END
