Young PIR Alumni congratulate Evgeny P. Buzhinsky

It’s my pleasure to wish happy 70th birthday to Evgeny Petrovich Buzhinsky!

I recognize Yevgeny Petrovich, first and foremost, as an outstanding teacher, but I also came to know him as exceptionally refined, good-hearted and pleasant person. Yevgeny Petrovich is a true expert in his field - an infinite source of knowledge, wisdom, and experience for all of his students. His professional, scrupulous and breviloquent, but at the same time gentle and friendly manner of teaching has made a strong impression on all of us.

Happy Birthday, Yevgeny Petrovich!
I wish you all the best!
Thank you!

Dear Evgeny Petrovich!

It was a great honor for me to be able to attend your lectures and to get answers to questions that had interested me for a long time. Your work is an example of faithful service to the Motherland and the desire to bring up a new generation that can solve complex problems for the benefit of global peace and security! I wish you good health and undying enthusiasm!

Seriousness, huge expert experience, the desire to share it, the ability to convey information and a little bit of irony - this is our professor Gen. Evgeny Buzhinskiy.

Each of his lectures is a wonderful and very useful hour and a half spent at the institute. It is fortunate to have a teacher who has not only rich theoretical, but also practical knowledge in the field of nonproliferation.

Professor Buzhinskiy, I greatly enjoyed having you as a professor for Modern Arms Control and Disarmament last semester. You always took the time to answer questions and made the subject very engaging. I hope that you had an incredible 70th birthday anniversary!

It was a privilege to learn about arms control from a true practitioner.
