MOSCOW. JUNE 15, 2020. PIR PRESS. “There is an unfortunate lack of empathy in the world that we desperately need to correct”, - William Potter, Director of the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies of the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, member of PIR Center Advisory Board.

EDITORIAL: We continue to introduce you to PIR Center folks – those who have worked in PIR Center for many years or have never been our staffers but have a lot to do with our organization – as colleagues, as comrades, as sources of inspiration for our development. Today the founder of PIR Center talks to a person combining these qualities “three in one”. This man has been our colleague for more than 25 years since the very moment of PIR Center inception, our good comrade for an even greater period of time, just short of 30 years, since when there was no PIR Center as such, inspiring many of our projects and undertakings.

In the nonproliferation community this person needs no introduction. Today we are having as our guest Mr. NPT, Director of the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey; Member of PIR Center Advisory Board, Foreign Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Professor William Potter. Today we are going to talk about Elsinore, “ryzhiki”, Marina Tsvetaeva, how to find “Crime and Punishment: in Myanmar and acquire movie rights for a Cuban detective novel… and a little bit about nuclear nonproliferation.
