SUBJECT: EXTRANCHECK: POST-SHIPMENT VERIFICATION:
ROTEK TTC, ENTHOZIASTOV HIGHWAY, MOSCOW, RUSSIA,
LICENSE NO. NLR

REFTEL: USDOC 04031

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

2. Reftel requested a post-shipment verification to
determine the legitimacy and reliability of the end-
user, Rotek TTC, Enthoziastov Highway, Moscow, Russia.
The company is listed on BIS license application: NLR
as the ultimate consignee of six (6) HMC489LP5 high
dynamic range surface mount amplifiers. ECCN 3A001.
Controlled for anti-terrorism (AT), missile technology
(MT) and nuclear non-proliferation (NP) reasons. The
exporter is Hittite Microwave Corporation, 20 Alpha
Road, Chelmsford, MA 01824.

3. Export Control Attach Peter Liston and LES
Political Specialist Boris Karasyov contacted
representatives of Rotek LLC by telephone and email
regarding the reftel commodity and its alleged
importation into Russia. No on-site PSV was conducted
at Rotek TTC because Rotek TTC never received the
shipment of six (6) HMC489LP5 high dynamic range
surface mount amplifiers identified in reftel.

4. According to Alexey Menshuten, the Director-
Coordinator of the group of companies Rotek TTC,
Rotek-TC, Rotek-Elpom, Rotek NPK and Rotek Telecom;
and Alexander Brazhnikov, Director General of Rotek
TC; Hittite Microwave Corporation shipped six (6)
HMC489LP5 high dynamic range surface mount amplifiers
to Rotek TTC via FedEx in 2006 after completing the
licensing process. However, because Rotek TTC was not
registered as an importer/exporter in Russia, Russian
Customs did not allow the shipment to clear customs
and returned it to Hittite. Rotek TTC claims that
they have never received the reftel commodity even
though they did request a re-shipment from Hittite.

5. Recommendations: Post was not able to conduct PSV
and therefore cannot recommend Rotek LLC, Moscow,
Russia as reliable recipients of sensitive U.S. origin
commodities.
