Sanctions on Russia

The Impact of Sanctions in Response to Government of Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine on Research and University related Activities

As of February 21, 2022, the United States and its allies released sanctions and export control restrictions on Russia and entities supporting the Russian Government. These sanctions include the Luhansk People’s Republic (LNR) and Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) regions of Ukraine.

These restrictions impact current and future University collaborations, agreements, and research projects.

Export Restrictions:

Items that previously did not require a license may now require government authorization. The export sanctions restrict high-level technologies that would advance Russia’s defense, maritime, and aviation growth. Many items and technologies subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) are affected, including but not limited to computers, semiconductors, telecommunication, encryption security, lasers, sensors, navigation, avionics, propulsion, aerospace, and maritime technologies.

Check with the Office of Regulatory Compliance before shipping or transferring any item or technology to Russia.
