“The PIR Center raised our awareness of historical and contemporary nuclear issues. We also learned about nuclear non-proliferation concerns, as well as next-generation conventional weapons that can potentially offset the delicate nuclear balance. My colleagues and I were honored to listen to lectures by distinguished guest professors that have first-hand experiencing in dealing with this topic, including those who represented the Russian Federation at top-level nuclear negotiations. The two-month course that we took was intense, but the knowledge and memories that we gained were well worth it”, – course leader, M.A. student Andrew Korybko.
“The security situation will most likely deteriorate over the winter of 2014. Not excluded is the fact that after the parliamentary elections in Ukraine, President Petro Poroshenko will make another attempt to solve the crisis in Donbas militarily. This will lead to a resumption of hostilities in the region with unpredictable results and will provoke further deterioration of Russia's relations with the West”, – PIR Center Senior Vice President, Lieutenant General (Ret.), Evgeny Buzhinsky.
“For me, as a graduate of Geneva Centre for Security Policy, it is a big honor to present this award – PIR Center’s globe – in nomination “For Educating the New Generation in the Area of Nonproliferation” to the representatives of the center. GCSP is an international foundation, which, in 1995 was established by the canton of Geneva and eleven states from across the world, including the Russian Federation. Today forty-five states participate. I am convinced that this high evaluation of GCSP activity demonstrates the demand for such approaches to the security issues”, – Timur Kyrabaev, Second Secretary, General Secretariat, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.
