In addition to the Kazan Scientific Center, the sanctions list includes the A.M. Prokhorov General Physics Institute and the Osipyan Institute of Solid State Physics.

"They have been added to the SDN sanctions list. In addition to them, two Russian container ships, Sasco Angara and Paramushir, have also been sanctioned," the statement says.

Other sanctions

The U.S. has also imposed sanctions against 14 vessels and private companies. Furthermore, companies from Kyrgyzstan, Serbia, and the United Arab Emirates have been subjected to restrictions.

Earlier, it was reported that the United States was preparing sanctions against Kyrgyzstan for its assistance to Russia in bypassing certain economic restrictions. Specifically, the country has been supplying sanctioned equipment and electronics.

Kyrgyzstan's exports to Russia have significantly increased in 2022, rising by 250% compared to the previous year before the invasion of Ukraine.
