Traveling to US restrictions

Hello everyone!

I am a citizen of the Russian Federation, and I recently received my F-1 visa from Warsaw, Poland. I booked my flights to the US months ago with Lufthansa (German airline that I always use), but today I called to make sure there were no travel restrictions, and they informed me that they are not letting Russian tourists enter the US via Germany, but they are not sure about students. I called the US embassy in Moscow, and in Poland, but both are not so sure about limitations. Has anyone Russian student recently entered the US on an F-1 visa, and if yes, which airline/ transit did you take.

Thank you for your help. I need to be in the US by mid September
