New Sanctions on Russian R&D

The UK government has today announced new sanctions on Russian research and innovation – ramping up the pressure on the Putin regime by withholding vital funds.

  • Britain is continuing to support the brave people of Ukraine as they stand up to tyranny by placing severe sanctions on Putin’s regime – making clear that unprovoked aggression will never pay.
  • That is why today the UK government has announced new sanctions that tackle Russian research and innovation – all payments for Russian-linked projects delivered through UK public funds have been paused and we will no longer provide new funding for collaborative projects, and we are providing a £3 million package of support for at-risk Ukrainian researchers.
  • These sanctions ensure that our response to Putin’s illegal invasion is far-reaching and comprehensive, and the UK continues to stand with our Ukrainian friends in their hour of need.
