MOSCOW, APRIL 29, 2021. PIR PRESS. “Inside this hell, there was an oasis that gave out the highest quality product. PIR Center. They tried to compete with us, but it’s all ridiculous. And they lived sinfully, and they ended up funny. But inside this product, there were still quite human relationships. I came to the oasis and could breathe – it was very important”, – Professor of the Department of Integrated Communications, HSE University, Dmitry Evstafiev.
EDITORIAL: Tomorrow, the PIR Center turns 27 years old. We will celebrate this holiday in the circle of friends who have already become the second family-Pirovskaya. In honor of the birthday, we prepared an issue with a member of this PIR family – Professor of the Department of Integrated Communications of the Higher School of Economics Dmitry Gennadievich Evstafiev, a long-time friend and former senior researcher of the PIR Center, who stood at the origins of the organization 27 years ago and made a great contribution to its development and formation. Our guest openly shares his views on life, which you can disagree with, but which can not be ignored. This interview has everything: thoughts about Crimea, the hybridity of the world, on the one hand, and thoughts about books “for suicide”, welders and PR specialists, on the other.
