    A New York City man and two Russian nationals have been arrested and charged after federal authorities say they were involved in a scheme to unlawfully export advanced military technology used in missile guidance systems to Russia.

    Authorities say Alexey Barysheff, Alexey Krutilin and Dmitrii Karpenko, among others, used two Brooklyn-based front companies to buy and unlawfully export sensitive electronics without a mandatory federal license.

    The microelectronics include digital-to-analog converters and integrated circuits, among others, which officials say are restricted for "anti-terrorism and national security reasons."

    Authorities say the trio also falsified records to conceal where they were shipping the electronics.

    It wasn't immediately known if they have attorneys.
