Ukraine’s anti-corruption watchdog wrote to German authorities and a Bavarian-based company seeking to halt the delivery to Russia of high-end machinery used by ammunition manufacturers.

The National Agency on Corruption Prevention in Kyiv informed the German government that a so-called CNC machine manufactured by Spinner Werkzeugmaschinenfabrik GmbH is en route to a plant in Russia from Turkey, according to letters seen by Bloomberg News and people familiar with the matter. The equipment is due to arrive later this month.

The CNC machine, which uses computer-operated tools to make precision instruments, is required to produce high-explosive fragmentation projectiles used by Russian forces in Ukraine, the documents say.

“It goes without saying that once the machine reaches Russia, there will be little we can do to prevent its use for military purposes by Russia: time is of the essence,” the agency wrote.

The Ukrainian demand underscores concerns that Russia has worked around European Union sanctions to import banned equipment used for military purposes via countries such as Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.

The machine’s journey — from Istanbul to a Russian port on the northeastern shores of the Black Sea, which Bloomberg was unable to independently verify — lays bare the challenges EU authorities face in enforcing restrictions on Russia designed to weaken its defense capabilities.

Ukraine’s NACP also wrote to Spinner. There is no suggestion of wrongdoing or awareness on the part of the company that its products would end up in Russia. The company didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

The CNC machine was loaded onto a truck in Turkey on Aug. 30, in preparation to be transported via ferry to a port on the northeastern shores of the Black Sea — and from there will go to the Serov Mechanical Plant JSC in Russia, the documents say.

The Russian ammunition manufacturer is associated with Rostec, the state-owned defense conglomerate that’s a under a raft of European and US sanctions.

The importer was identified as Yumak LLC, a Russian company that’s a regular supplier of several sanctioned entities involved in the production of ammunition, projectiles as well as other components used by tanks and Russia Su and MiG fighter jets, according to the documents.
Germany’s Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Controls, which is tasked with enforcing sanctions, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
German manufacturers like Spinner are known for their precision engineering — and there are many producers of high-quality CNC machines based in Europe’s largest economy. The machines are used in the defense industry for high-volume production of ammunition including bullets and artillery projectiles.
Other equipment produced by the company has made its way to Russia in the past from third parties and third countries, according to people familiar with the deliveries. There is no suggestion of any direct shipments from Germany, the people said.

Russian International Money Launderer Arrested For Illicitly Procuring Large Quantities Of U.S.-Manufactured Dual-Use, Military Grade Microelectronics For Russian Entities

Monday, September 18, 2023

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of New York

Maxim Marchenko Allegedly Participated in an Overseas Illicit Procurement Network That, After Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine, Illegally Procured Large Quantities of Dual-Use, Military Grade OLED Micro-Displays for Russian End Users
Damian Williams, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Matthew G. Olsen, the Assistant Attorney General of the Justice Department’s National Security Division, David Lim, Co-Director of Task Force KleptoCapture, James Smith, the Assistant Director in Charge of the New York Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”), and Matthew S. Axelrod, the Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Export Enforcement, announced the unsealing of a Complaint charging MAXIM MARCHENKO with conspiring to defraud the United States and with smuggling, wire fraud, and money laundering offenses based on MARCHENKO’s alleged participation in a scheme to unlawfully procure U.S.-sourced, dual-use microelectronics with military applications on behalf of end users in Russia. MARCHENKO was presented before U.S. Magistrate Judge Andrew E. Krause in White Plains federal court earlier today and ordered detained.

U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said: “As alleged, Maxim Marchenko participated in an illicit procurement network that provided military grade microelectronics to end users in Russia. Following Russia’s unjust invasion of Ukraine, Marchenko and his co-conspirators are alleged to have used shell companies and other deceptive measures in order to secure U.S.-manufactured microelectronics, with applications including in rifle scopes, night-vision goggles, thermal optics, and weapon systems, for use by Russians. This Office will relentlessly pursue those who seek to flout U.S. law in order to supply Russia with military technology.”

Assistant Attorney General Matthew G. Olsen said: “According to the complaint, Marchenko employed a web of shell companies as part of an overseas smuggling ring to ship dual-use U.S. technology with military applications to Russia in contravention of U.S. law. Today’s action reinforces the Department’s commitment to protect U.S. security and counter Russian aggression in Ukraine through the vigorous enforcement of our export control laws.”
Co-Director of Task Force KleptoCapture David Lim said: “Disrupting the efforts of facilitators and procurement agents like Marchenko, who use their skills and connections to advance the agenda of the Russian war machine, is one of the most important priorities of this Task Force. Today’s arrest should serve as another reminder that we will leverage and deploy every tool to bring these criminals to justice.”
FBI Assistant Director in Charge James Smith said: “Attempts by individuals to circumvent U.S. law through money laundering and other forms of deception undermine foreign policy established to keep the United States and our allies safe. Marchenko allegedly defied U.S. law by procuring sensitive American-made electronics on behalf of the Russian end users, directly endangering citizens in both Ukraine and the United States. The FBI will not yield in its efforts to stop those who deceive the U.S. government and directly jeopardize our national security.”
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Export Enforcement Matthew S. Axelrod said: “We are laser-focused on rooting out the procurement networks fueling the Russian war machine. Working hand-in-hand with our federal law enforcement partners, we will continue to identify and disrupt Russia’s use of front companies in the People’s Republic of China and elsewhere to evade our controls.”
According to the allegations contained in the Complaint unsealed today in White Plains federal court:[1]
MAXIM MARCHENKO is a Russian national who resides in Hong Kong and operates several Hong Kong-based shell companies, including Alice Components Co. Ltd. (“Alice Components”), Neway Technologies Limited (“Neway”), and RG Solutions Limited (“RG Solutions”). MARCHENKO and two co-conspirators (“CC-1” and “CC-2”), who are also Russian nationals, operate an illicit procurement network in Russia, Hong Kong, and elsewhere overseas. This procurement network has fraudulently obtained from U.S. distributors large quantities of dual-use, military grade microelectronics, specifically OLED micro-displays, on behalf of Russia-based end users. To carry out this scheme, MARCHENKO, CC-1, and CC-2 used shell companies based in Hong Kong and other deceptive means to conceal from U.S. Government agencies and U.S. distributors that the OLED micro-displays were destined for Russia. The technology that MARCHENKO and his co-conspirators fraudulently procured have significant military applications, such as in rifle scopes, night-vision googles, thermal optics, and other weapon systems.
To perpetrate the scheme, MARCHENKO and other members of the conspiracy acquired the dual-use OLED micro-displays from U.S.-based distributors using MARCHENKO’s Hong Kong-based shell companies, including Alice Components, Neway, and RG Solutions. Members of the conspiracy, including MARCHENKO, procured these sensitive microelectronics by falsely representing to the U.S. distributors (who, in turn, are required to report to U.S. agencies) that Alice Components was sending the shipments to end users located in China, Hong Kong, and other countries outside of Russia for use in electron microscopes for medical research. In reality, the OLED micro-displays were destined for end users in Russia. MARCHENKO and other members of the conspiracy concealed the true final destination (Russia) from U.S. distributors for the purpose of causing false statements to the U.S. agencies.
To conceal the fact that these OLED micro-displays were destined for Russia, MARCHENKO and other members of the conspiracy worked together to transship the illicitly procured OLED micro-displays by using pass-through entities principally operated by MARCHENKO in third countries, such as Hong Kong. MARCHENKO then caused the OLED micro-displays to be shipped to the ultimate destination in Russia using, among other entities, a freight forwarder known to provide freight forwarding services to Russia. In addition, MARCHENKO and other members of the conspiracy used Hong Kong-based shell companies, principally operated by MARCHENKO, to conceal the fact that payments for the OLED micro-displays were coming from Russia. In total, between in or about May 2022 and in or about August 2023, MARCHENKO’s shell companies funneled a total of more than $1.6 million to the United States in support of the procurement network’s efforts to smuggle the OLED micro-displays to Russia.
* * *​
MARCHENKO, 51, a Russian citizen who has resided in Hong Kong, is charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison; conspiracy to commit money laundering, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison; conspiracy to smuggle goods from the United States, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison; money laundering, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison; smuggling goods from the United States, which carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison; conspiracy to commit wire fraud, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison; and wire fraud, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
The statutory maximum penalties are prescribed by Congress and are provided here for informational purposes only, as any sentencing of the defendant would be determined by a judge.
Mr. Williams praised the outstanding investigative work of the FBI and its New York Field Office, Counterintelligence Division and the New York Field Office of the Bureau of Industry and Security of the Department of Commerce. Mr. Williams also thanked the FBI’s Legal Attaché office in Australia; the U.S. Department of State’s Diplomatic Security Service; the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, Counterintelligence and Export Control Section; and the Office of International Affairs of the Department of Justice’s Criminal Division for their assistance.
This case is being handled by the Office’s White Plains Division and Money Laundering and Transnational Criminal Enterprises Unit. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jennifer N. Ong and Shiva H. Logarajah are in charge of the prosecution, with assistance from Trial Attorney Garrett Coyle of the Counterintelligence and Export Control Section.
Today’s actions were coordinated through the Justice Department’s Task Force KleptoCapture. Task Force KleptoCapture is an interagency law enforcement task force dedicated to enforcing the sweeping sanctions, export restrictions, and economic countermeasures that the United States has imposed, along with its allies and partners, in response to Russia’s unprovoked military invasion of Ukraine.
The charges in the Complaint are merely accusations, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
[1] As the introductory phrase signifies, the entirety of the text of the Complaint and the description of the Complaint set forth herein constitute only allegations, and every fact described should be treated as an allegation.

Pues claro que los ucranianos tienen "crazy artillery firepòwer."Y mas que van a tener.

EEUU fabricaba al comenzar la guerra 10.000 proyectiles anuales de 155mm,al año estaban fabricando 25.000 y hace unos dias anunciaron que van a fabricar 100.000.

Van a enterrar a los ucranianos en municion...y sin contar que otros paises OTAN tambien estan aumentando su produccion de municion y juguetes de todo tipo.

Ucrania pide a Alemania que impida que se suministren a Rusia máquinas CNC a través de Turquía. Esas máquinas fabricadas por una compañía de Baviera se pueden emplear para fabricar munición.

Hace un par de semanas ya se hablaba de que en un video que había salido en una TV rusa sobre la fabricación de Lancet se veían máquinas CNC alemanas y surcoreanas, claro que no se sabía si se habían comprado antes o después de las sanciones.

Brutalsky, Himars norcoreanos de imitación y gemelas brutalsky borrachas del FSB liándola en un restaurante

¿Cómo llegó Rusia a convertirse en una nación tan poderosa? ¿Dónde encaja en términos de cultura, geografía, etc.?

¡A la izquierda está el pensamiento crítico brutal y tortuoso! Un profesor de una escuela de artes y oficios ruso arrebató con agilidad el cigarrillo electrónico de su alumno y se dirigió hacia la salida. Al salir del taller cogió un yunque y un mazo.

Corrió hacia la calle; sus alumnos de secundaria lo siguieron riendo y grabando videos con sus teléfonos celulares. El viejo maestro puso el yunque en el camino, colocó el cigarrillo electrónico en el centro y anunció con voz ronca de fumador empedernido:
“El ejecutor está listo. ¡Habrá una ejecución de otro cigarrillo electrónico!

Y procedió a golpear con un mazo el cigarrillo electrónico al estilo Wagner hasta que quedó una maraña de cables y plástico roto. Un transeúnte juró haber oído reír a Yevgeny Prigozhin desde Valhalla.

Los HIMARS norcoreanos han llegado a Rusia. Los Z-patriotas se frotan las manos de alegría: ¡por fin vamos a destruir puentes y centros de mando de Ukronaizs con ataques precisos como lo hacen con nosotros!

Sin embargo, tras una inspección minuciosa, los especialistas rusos descubrieron que no se trata en absoluto del Americansky HIMARS, sino de una imitación del sistema ruso de misiles balísticos de corto alcance Iskander. Sólo la cabina del vehículo parece la de Lockheed Martin para engañar tanto al enemigo como al amigo.

En algún lugar de Corea del Norte, un niño pequeño y gordo masticó una barra de chocolate suizo y se burló de cómo había engañado una vez más al gran maestro geopolítico VV Putin.

A veces siento que mis compatriotas vieron demasiadas películas y series de televisión de Hollywood cuando eran niños y jóvenes y cuando crecieron decidieron recrear todo lo que vieron en la pantalla.

Esta es una agente rusa del FBI, Victoria Isaikina, canalizando a Dana Scully y mostrando su tarjeta de identificación en una funda de cuero.

La organización gubernamental se llama oficialmente Comité de Investigación encabezado por el amigo geriátrico del presidente Putin que no puede leer texto en la pantalla de la computadora sin una lupa, ¡pero es lo más parecido que tenemos al súper genial FBI americano!

¿Quizás Victoria está investigando un delito cibernético cometido por unos hackers rusos que irrumpieron en la guarida del súper villano empeñado en bombardear al mundo desde su guarida en la montaña?

Ella y su hermana gemela (!) Natalya, jefa del departamento de Seguridad Económica y Anticorrupción, están intentando entrar en el restaurante… Malibú .

¿Quieren arrestar a los malos, algunos oligarcas rusos que robaron miles de millones de dólares a los desventurados contribuyentes?

Las gemelas brutalsky están llevando calor desde Siberia hasta el restaurante Malibu. Estoy seguro de que obtendrán justicia.

No. Las gemelas atractivas del FBI y de ese otro departamento que pretende luchar contra la corrupción quisieron entrar al restaurante Malibu en la ciudad de Big Stone, Territorio de Primorsky, estando borrachas y muy drogadas.

Llamaron “basura” a los guardias de seguridad y amenazaron con arrastrarlos al departamento si a ellas, hermanas gemelas, no se les permitía entrar.

Y ahora el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional de Rusia y el FBI ruso llevarán a cabo una investigación interna de por qué las hermanas no se comportaron tan bien como los actores americanos en las películas de Hollywood.
