Summary

The U.S. State Department has compiled a secret list of 20 Russian research institutes suspected of helping Iran's missile program, and it is restricting the flow of U.S. research funds to some of those institutes. The existence of the list, which was revealed last week by the newspaper USA Today, is raising concerns among some experts that it could undermine Western efforts to steer defense scientists in the former Soviet Union into peaceful research.
