“In the West, a ceasefire agreement for the east of Ukraine was taken skeptically. The issue of a new round of sanctions against Russia was not removed from the agenda. The comments from Washington and Brussels come down to doubts on whether the agreement would work or not. However, there are no other circumspect ways to resolve the crisis yet. The coming days will show if the Minsk agreement passes the test of time”, - Director General of the Russian Council for Foreign Affairs Andrey Kortunov.
“I would like to express my utmost gratitude for your efforts to integrate ongoing PIR Center research into the educational process at MGIMO. The joint module on nuclear nonproliferation that was organized in 2013 generated lively and interested responses from students and demonstrated great potential for future cooperation. We hope that the grounds we created will serve as a foundation for the opening of full-fledged educational programs,” – Rector of MGIMO University Anatoly Vasilyevich Torkunov.
“The Internet Governance Forum has established itself as a non-biased and convenient multistakeholder mechanism. However today it needs a mainstream direction for the organized and scheduled process aimed at resolution of the key problems in this field. Since the adoption of the Brazilian national law on the Internet – Marco Civil – in April 2014, the discussion has been going on concerning the feasibility of elaboration of a global act on the principles of the internet governance. In case if the IGF mechanism is strengthened and updated, it could take on such work”, - Director of the PIR Center Program “International Information Security and Global Internet Governance” Oleg Demidov.
