Russian Research Institutes & CBW Programs

Sayari has conducted investigations into Russian research institutes implicated in current and/or historical CBW research and production. In response to the Russian government’s use of a chemical weapon, the U.S. Department of State added six such research institutes to the CAATSA Section 231 List of Specified Persons. As you may recall, we found that these six institutes do not appear to directly import from abroad, instead appearing to procure goods including lab equipment and materials from domestic suppliers.
