“Our technology is proven to be of a high, reliable quality.  Our partners are no less interested in us than we are in them.  The age of nuclear energy facilities is extending; it will soon reach 100 plus years – much longer than any particular trend in international affairs.  We are self-sufficient in practically all critical nuclear technologies.  Most importantly, Russia is ready to balanced cooperation on the basis of mutual benefit and the interests of the involved parties,” – Director of the Department of International Cooperation, Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation, Mikhail Lysenko.

“The CyberModule classes at the PIR Center International School gave me a powerful professional boost and allowed me to become acquainted with leading Russian information security and internet governance experts.  I especially anticipated lectures with focus on the Runet regulation, analysis of identification on the internet and other topics; such lectures fully lived up to all expectations. I awant to note the importance of the debates and other interactive exercises, which give impetus to further independent study of these issues,” – Olga Bogdanovich, Ph.D. student in the department of Russian, Slavic and General Linguistics at Taurida National V.I.Vernadsky University.

“In winter 2014 I expect the security situation to get worse. By the time the campaign against Islamic State is over we will see the group becoming active and stronger outside Syria and Iraq just like Al-Qaeda before. Libya will become hub for terrorism and its transition will become even more complicated than it has been. The USA might find itself sucked into an endless conflict in the region and light as well decide to go back to Iraq under whatever pretext”, - Independent Libyan Academic, Journalist, Mustafa Fetouri.
