“China shows no signs at all of being ready to join the process. Of course, that could change over time. In fact, it would also be in Russia’s best interests if not just China but also France and Britain were to join in, though neither country seems to have much to say on the matter for the time being. If we choose to pursue this scenario, we should be aware that any meaningful progress would take years to achieve. Meanwhile, we are facing some urgent tasks that cannot wait. And that is why Russia and the United States should continue to work as a duo, until such time when the duo can become a trio or, even better, a quintet.”, – Director of PIR Center Vladimir Orlov.


“In the year of the PIR Center 25th anniversary, it can be stated with confidence that Educational Program of the organization remains one of the most successful and demanded. Since the establishment of the program, tremendous work has been done on its development, and it remains ongoing today. For more than 20 years we have been working together with our partners to create a community of next-generation specialists in the field of WMD nonproliferation and global security”, – Director of PIR Center`s Educational Program Yulia Sych.
