"Already at the first meeting, the students set a high standard for us. Students who came here are not simple ones: many of them have several years of very interesting experience both in the field of international relations and in other areas. Almost everyone speaks Russian one way or another. We are all looking forward to interesting work. We will try to introduce students to our partners, the most experienced experts," – Albert Zulkharneev, PIR Center Director.

“Autonomous weapons turn the military men into romantics: they are looking forward to another revolution in military affairs. It means new arms race, temptation to dominate globally, dismantlement of the theory of containment, and international instability for international relations.” – says Vadim Kozyulin, Director of the PIR-Center Project on New Technologies and International Security.
