From January 1, 2023, the Czech Republic officially ceased cooperation with the Russian Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna near Moscow.

It is reported by Radio.cz.

As stated in the statement of the Czech government, the main reason for this decision was the military aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine. The process of refusing such cooperation with a long-term Russian partner was launched in April 2022, but Czech President Milos Zeman put the last point by signing the corresponding document.

"Russia could interpret the retention of membership as a continuation of scientific cooperation in a strategic area and indirectly as ignoring the fact that the Russian Federation is committing unprecedented violations of international law and order and human rights," the resolution says.

Even earlier, the Ministry of Education of the Czech Republic decided to terminate its employees' participation in the Russian organization's research activities. According to the agency, the termination of membership will not be a significant limitation for Czech research.
