A federal indictment unsealed Monday in Savannah outlines what the FBI has labeled a “brazen scheme” to undermine U.S. trade sanctions and jeopardize U.S. national security interests by bolstering Russia’s corruption-riddled oil and gas industry.

The federal charges stem from an alleged attempt to supply an unnamed oil and gas company controlled by the Russian government with a power turbine, said Bobby Christine, U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Georgia in Savannah.
