MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 14th August, 2019) The order, which toughens the regulations for contacts between Russian scientists and their foreign colleagues, is recommendatory in nature, the Russian education and Science Ministry said in a statement Wednesday.
Earlier in the day, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russian scientists should show some vigilance, as foreign countries might be conducting spying activities in the scientific and industrial sector.
