Export Privileges Suspended for Unlicensed Shipments to Russia
The Bureau of Industry and Security has issued an order suspending for ten years the export privileges of an individual convicted of knowingly and willfully exporting a thermal camera, gun parts, and a night vision sight (items designated as defense articles on the U.S. Munitions List) to Russia without the required BIS licenses. The man was previously sentenced to 15 months in prison, three years of supervised release, and a $100 assessment.
As a result, until April 6, 2026, neither this man nor anyone on his behalf may directly or indirectly participate in any way in any transaction involving any commodity, software, or technology exported or to be exported from the U.S. that is subject to the Export Administration Regulations. BIS is also revoking all export licenses in which this man had an interest at the time of his conviction.
