“What is happening in the United States has created a significant layer of politicians who made their career on anti-Trump, ant-Russian positions. I do not expect those particular people to change their mind anytime soon. In my view, two election cycles will have to occur in the United States to bring a new thinking. Especially taking into account that the majority of those in Congress do not care too much about Russia, and they do not know too much about Russia”, – Amb. Sergey Kislyak, First Deputy Chairperson, Committee on Foreign Affairs, Council of the Federation.

“In the 2002 study on disarmament and non-proliferation education (A/57/124) the Board is encouraged “to consider periodically follow-up action related to disarmament and non-proliferation education”.

Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University and Daryl Press, Associate Professor in the Department of Government at Dartmouth College.

“The structured dialogue on current and future challenges and risks to security launched within the OSCE is not yet a negotiation on a regime of conventional arms control in Europe, but an attempt to develop a shared understanding of what could be its foundation in the current conditions. Russia has supported this process, yet it specified that unless NATO drops its deterrence policy there could hardly be any progress,” —  Oleg Shakirov, PIR Center consultant.
