    Russia announced over the weekend that it has permanently banned 963 Americans from entering Russia in the wake of US sanctions for its invasion of Ukraine, Axios reported.

    The list, which is an update to the list Moscow released in March, which included US President Biden, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and other US officials, includes three Lubavitchers, YWN reported.

    The Lubavitchers were apparently banned due to their connection to the legal battle to recover seforim and manuscripts that belonged to the Friediker Rebbe and were stolen by the Soviet Union and the Nazis.

    The banned Lubavitchers are: Rabbi Shlomo Cunin, R’ Avraham Shemtov, and R’ Yehuda Krinsky.

    Also included on the list is “Nathan Levin, advocate,” which may be referring to Nathan Lewin, famed frum lawyer who has been representing Lubavitch in its litigation against Russia.

    According to the report, there are three other Jewish names on the list but no information is known about their identities and why they are included on the list: Avrohom Yitzhak Weisfish (122), Moshe Cohen (383), and Ofman Yosef Chaim (910).
