1. Unauthorized disclosure of the information provided
below is prohibited by Section 12C of the Export
Administration Act.

2. Reftel requested a Pre-license check to determine
the legitimacy and reliability of the end-user,
Vyacheslav Filinov, Moscow, Russia. The company is
listed on BIS license application D373587 as the
ultimate consignee of (4) four Leapers SCP394AOMDL
fifth generation air rifle scopes. These items are
controlled for foreign policy reasons under ECCN
OA987. The licensee is ET Antiques, LLC, 14-20 George

3. On May 25, 2007, FSN Natalya Shipitsina contacted
Vyacheslav Filinov by telephone. Mr. Filinov stated
that he was no longer interested in buying the scopes,
and therefore did not see any reason to meet with the
ECO.

4. Recommendations: Post cannot determine the
reliability of Vyacheslav Filinov as a recipient of
sensitive U.S. goods or technology.
