The Council of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) has decided to completely stop any cooperation with Russia and Belarus due to the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine.

It is reported by Ukrinform with reference to statement organizations.

As noted, at yesterday’s meeting, the CERN Council condemned Russia’s illegal military invasion of Ukraine with the participation of Belarus, which led to a large-scale humanitarian crisis and significant casualties.

The Council announced that it intends to terminate the CERN International Cooperation Agreement (ICAS) with Russia and Belarus when it expires in 2024. At the same time, CERN stated that they would continue to closely monitor the situation and were ready to take any further steps, taking into account the developments in Ukraine.

At an extraordinary meeting on March 8 and at a regular meeting on March 25, the Council of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) decided that it would not participate in new cooperation programs with Russia and its institutions due to its aggression against Ukraine.

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is an international research center of the European Community, the world’s largest laboratory for high energy physics, headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland.
