“The NPT is the foundation of our life. It is the most important contemporary international treaty. There is just no treaty more important than the NPT. We must fight for this treaty at all costs; we are doomed without it. We must talk more about the NPT so that everybody knows about it,” – Ambassador Roland Timerbaev, PIR Center Advisory Board Member, one of the negotiators of the NPT.

“А third party, be it a country or a non-state actor, can attack critical infrastructure of the US or Russia, making it look as if the aggressor was the other one, thus provoking war between them. In cyber space this is possible. Both the Russian and the US cyber doctrines allow them to react to major cyberattacks with all military means. Therefore, an effective direct communication and de-escalation channels between the two countries are a priority,” – Dr. Elena Chernenko, PIR Center Executive Board Member and Deputy Head of the Kommersant Newspaper Foreign Policy Department.

Russian-American Dialogue on Global Security

Russian-American dialogue on global security issues has been among PIR Center's priorities for many years. With the current deteriorating state of the bilateral relations, the importance of such dialogue between the two countries has been increasigly growing over the past few years, a tendency that will expectedly remain valid for many years ahead. 

In 2016, PIR Center in partnership with Centre russe d’etudes politiques (Geneva, Switzerland) and James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (Monterey, USA) renewed its efforts to promote Track 1.5 dialogue between Russia and the United States by establishing a high-level US-Russian Working Group on the NPT Review Process. In 2017, another initiative by the three institutions was launched that brought leading experts on arms control and strategic stability from the two countries to form Working Group on Strategic Stability and De-escalation in US-Russian Relations.
