"Today's dilemma in US-Russian relations is not the choice between whether they are good or bad, but between whether they produce positive changes or nothing at all, whether we use this experience to reopen a constructive dialogue in the strategic sphere, expand it into new areas, and develop an agenda of bilateral relations or miss this opportunity " - PIR Center President Vladimir Orlov.


On December 6-7, 2011 PIR Center together with the Ploughshares Fund will hold a meeting of the Sustainable Partnership with Russia (SuPR) Group on “Future of the Russian-US Strategic Dialogue: Beyond Deterrence – Building a Sustainable Agenda”. We expect that Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the USA Sergey Kislyak and Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Affairs Ellen Tauscher will take part in the meeting.
