"All I have to say to Trump, abandon this reckless game before it’s too late! You are deluding yourself if you think you’ve been dealt all the trump cards. Your imaginary perfect is the enemy of the good. The JCPoA is a good deal. Signed not only by the United States, but also by six other countries (including Russia), it is working well. All the parties are abiding by their commitments. There can be no deal with Iran without Iran itself. Your imaginary grand bargain is a folly; it has no basis in reality." — Dr. Vladimir A. Orlov, Member of the UN Secretary-General’s Advisory Board on Disarmament Matters, PIR Center founder.

“In the Universe there is a certain order of its existence, we are part of the universe, and we swung to an atom and decided to create a weapon, that could be a way of destroying the present mankind. I do not know if I understood this in 1995, but now and for a long time I am convinced that this is one of the ways of the extinction of mankind, and it can happen. Every day, it is necessary to think about how to avoid the annihilation of mankind” - Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador Roland Timberbaev, member of the PIR Center Advisory Board.

About PIR Center

PIR Center is an independent nongovernmental organization, which carries out research, as well as educational, public awareness and publishing activities, and provides consulting services. From the time of its founding in April 1994 to this day, the priority areas of the Center's research studies remain international security, control and nonproliferation of weapons of mass destruction. PIR Center is in consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).

From 1994 to 2014, the PIR Center has published Security Index journal (Yaderny Kontrol "Nuclear Control" until 2007).  The journal is published in Russian and English four times a year.  The special edition one-hundredth issue of the journal came into the world in spring of 2012.  Because of this, the PIR Center held a series of academic and practical events in Moscow, Geneva and Vienna to mark the occasion.  Since 2014, PIR Press, LLC is the journal's publisher.

Informational and analytic writing occupies an important part of our work in the form of the regularly published informational/analytic newsletters PIR Press, Yaderny Kontrol, Russia Confidential, and CyberPulse (published since 20/09/2012).  The PIR Center is located in Moscow; the PIR Center's partner organization, Centre Russe d'Etudes Politiques, is based in Geneva, Switzerland. 

The PIR Center has long and extensive ties with leading Russian and foreign research institutes, government and non-government experts.  All this allows the PIR Center to remain one of the most authoritative Russian organizations to take part in international discussion on global security issues.

PIR Center has become a leading Russian nongovernmental research organization in the area of international security. In its day-to-day operations, the Center maintains close contacts with executive and legislative agencies. The Center receives considerable support from its Advisory Board that numbers more then 60 individual and corporate members.

ffffIMG_5337.JPGSince 1997, the PIR Center has been developing educational programs in the area of nonproliferation and international security. Under its educational projects, the Center closely interacts with the leading Russian higher education institutions: MGIMO, MEPhI, St. Petersburg, Tomsk and Novosibirsk State Universities and others. With the appointment of PIR Center President Vladimir Orlov in 2001 as a UN consultant on disarmament and nonproliferation education, the Center won international recognition in the sphere of education. 

PIR Center makes intensive efforts to involve young specialists in its work. The Center staff in different times included recent graduates of the top Russian higher education institutions, such as MGIMO, Moscow State University and MEPhI. Their professional development, however, would be impossible without support and advice given by experienced senior colleagues: one of the founding fathers of the nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, Doctor of History, Ambassador Plenipotentiary and Extraordinary, Professor Roland Timerbaev; Doctor of Military Sciences, Lieutenant-General (Ret.) Vasily Lata etc.

The Center has around 20 staff members working on various short- and long-term projects. 

Since its establishment, the PIR Center has been publishing materials on nonproliferation, arms control and international security either in its periodicals or as monographs of the PIR Center Library series.
