“EU research cooperation is based on the respect for the freedoms and rights that underpin excellence and innovation. Russia’s heinous military aggression against Ukraine is an attack against those same values. It is therefore time to put an end to our research cooperation with Russia,” said Margrethe Vestager, executive vice president for a Europe fit for the Digital Age. 

The assessment of the situation as it regards to Belarus is ongoing, the commission added.
