Can Sanctioned Roscosmos Chief Rogozin Visit The U.S.?

White House Temporarily Lifts Sanctions on Russia's Space Chief for U.S. Visit, Moscow Times

"The White House has temporarily lifted an entry ban imposed on the head of Russia's federal space agency to allow him to visit the United States, the head of NASA has said in an interview with Russian media. The U.S. banned entry to and froze the assets of ex-Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, along with other officials it blames for Moscow's seizure of the Crimean peninsula in March 2014. Rogozin, 54, oversaw Russia's powerful arms industry before he was appointed to head the Roscosmos state space agency earlier this year. Rogozin will now be able to travel to the U.S. under a workaround that removes the sanctions for the duration of his visit, NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine told the state-run TASS news agency Friday."
