The US has accused five people of smuggling optical sights to Russia

Five people are charged in the United States in the case of illegal deliveries of optical sights to Russia, the US Department of Justice said.

All five are charged with conspiracy to violate the Export Restrictions Act and face up to 20 years in prison.

In this case, 59-year-old Elena Shifrina and 55-year-old Vladimir Pridacha, whose citizenship the Ministry of Justice does not specify, were arrested in Illinois. According to the ministry, Shifrina and Pridacha for almost four years bought on the domestic market prohibited for export without special licenses thermal imaging optical sights worth 5-10 thousand dollars apiece and resold them to Russia, using false names and addresses. They also gave written guarantees at the time of purchase that they would not export their products to third countries.
