On April 8, 2010, the day when the New START Treaty was signed, PIR Center in collaboration with the Ploughshares Fund established the Sustainable Partnership with Russia (SuPR) Group. The SuPR Group’s main objective was to support continuing and long-lasting success in the efforts by the Russian Federation and the United States to work as partners on two of the most important issues on the global security agenda: nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear disarmament. All members of the SuPR Group were leading experts on U.S.-Russian relations, nuclear nonproliferation and disarmament. The Group also included one media representative from each side to make its work transparent for the public in both countries.
The Group met on February 2-3, 2011 in Gstaad, Switzerland, and on December 6-7, 2011 in Washington D.C. and produced a number of analytical materials.
SuPR group implemented its goals and was dissolved in July of 2014. Below are the materials produced by the group:
