In mid-May, the US Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation voted to ban, too, federal funding for American scientists who take part in talent development programs sponsored by China, according to Science magazine.

With this measure, scientists from several countries, including Russia, are also barred from managing projects with subsidies financed through US federal funds.

Khokhlov pointed out that the bill stipulates that an American scientist who takes part in programs that support the scientific talent in China, Russia, Iran and North Korea will not receive subsidies in the United States.

He indicated that, if this measure is approved, it will also mean that American scientists will not be able to participate in Russia’s mega-scholarship program.

The vice president of the Russian Academy of Sciences said that the possible inclusion of American researchers in a wider range of joint programs is also subject to a ban.

He warned that the bill has a retroactive nature. In other words, if a scientist received a Chinese or Russian subsidy in the past, he or she will not receive US subsidies, he added.
