SSTL of Ukraine appeal to all concerned to contradict legalization of Crimea annexation

According to the request of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, SSTL of Ukraine begins large-scale work to check and monitor international references databases, such as Scopus and Web of Science, on the presence of records that violate international law.

Ukrainian institutions which are located in the temporarily occupied territories of the Crimea and on terrorist quasi-state entities are erroneously affiliated with the Russian Federation by such records.

This invalid information might be used by hostile propaganda to legalize the Crimea annexation. We appeal to all concerned to join to this important initiative and contribute to the detection of such violations. If you know of such entries, please share this information with us by sending an email to
