    The US authorities have arrested two Russian nationals Dmitrii Karpenko and Alexey Krutilin on allegations of plans to export controlled microelectronics to Russia, the US Department of Justice said in a release on Thursday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The two Russian citizens allegedly worked on the scheme with a naturalized US citizen Alexey Barysheff from Brooklyn, New York, according to the US authorities.

    "The complaints allege that Barysheff, Karpenko, Krutilin, and others were involved in a conspiracy to obtain cutting-edge microelectronics from manufacturers and suppliers located within the United States and to export those high-tech products to Russia, while evading the government licensing system set up to control such exports," the release stated.
