A news release on 3rd December from the DoJ advised that a newly unsealed superseding indictment has charged Russian and Italian nationals, a US citizen and various companies in a conspiracy to evade international trade sanctions, as well as conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and conspiracy to commit money laundering. The DoJ links the indictments to the enforcement of US restrictions on exports to Russia’s oil and gas industry. The indictment refers to the purchase of a Vectra 40G power turbine from a US-based manufacturer, to be used on a Russian Arctic deepwater (greater than 500 feet) drilling platform.
