“After carefully considering the process the manuscript went through, we determined that we were wrong when we decided that the article could not be accepted for consideration due to the sanctions.

We apologize to the authors, ”RIA Novosti quotes the response of the American organization.

The Union invited the authors to resubmit the article for consideration for publication.

They promised to consider the study of Russian scientists on an equal basis with other applications.

Earlier, the Institute of Applied Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences said that AGU did not publish an article by Russian scientists in the journal Geophysical Research Letters entitled "A New Connection between El Niño - Southern Oscillation and Atmospheric Electricity."

The American Union explained their decision by the fact that they cannot consider works that receive funding from the Russian government and the Ministry of Education.
