On Monday, American prosecutors announced that a Canadian woman named Kristina Puzyreva, 32, had pleaded guilty for her role in a multimillion-dollar scheme to send electronics to Russia for use in the war against Ukraine. Puzyreva was found guilty of money-laundering conspiracy for her part in sending components used in unnamed aerial vehicles (UAVs) and guided missile systems in violation of export and sanctions laws. According to court documents, Puzyreva has been living in Montreal. More details about the case are expected to be made public at a later date.
