"Strategic stability, according to a basic understanding, means the relationship between Russia and the United States, when both sides have no incentives to launch a first nuclear strike. It was defined during the Cold War. Development of new arms technologies, including highprecision non-nuclear, hypersonic weapons and space-based missile defense systems, makes an impact on strategic stability. A significant shift in balance of power between Russia and the United States can undermine stability, increasing the risk of nuclear conflict," - Consultant to PIR Center and Researcher of the Center for Global Trends and International Organizations of the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Foreign Ministry Andrey Baklitskiy.

In such difficult times, it is especially important to generate constructive and positive ideas, and I look forward to welcome them from the young generation of experts”, – PIR Center Director Vladimir Orlov.
