New York, Canadian defendants charged in US with exporting technology to Russia

NEW YORK (Reuters) – A Brooklyn man and two Montreal residents were charged on Tuesday in New York over an alleged scheme to violate U.S. sanctions by exporting millions of dollars of technology to Russia, including equipment supporting the Kremlin’s invasion of Ukraine.

Salimdzhon Nasriddinov, 52; Nikolay Goltsev, 37, and Kristina Puzyreva, 32, were each charged with smuggling, conspiracy to violate sanctions and wire fraud conspiracy. The U.S. Attorney’s office in Brooklyn said Nasriddinov, a Russian-Tajikistan national, was arrested in Brooklyn, while Goltsev and Puzyreva, both Russian-Canadian nationals, were arrested at a Manhattan hotel during a trip to visit him.

Prosecutors want the defendants jailed pending trial, saying they pose a”serious flight risk” and have significant foreign ties.We encourage you to use comments to engage with other users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other.
