"Russia’s vision of arms control, disarmament and non-proliferation issues remains in fact very conventional. It is pragmatic and realistic. We do not feel “constrained by traditional formats and diplomatic protocol”. On the contrary, we strongly believe that in many cases using proven formats and keeping to well-established diplomatic routine is the best way to address and resolve outstanding international issues of today and tomorrow. From our point of view, this “traditionalist” – or maybe “no-nonsense” – approach might be helpful for preventing turning serious and solution-oriented professional discussions aimed at achieving substantive results into road-shows with uncertain purpose, random participation and no clear mandate", – Sergey RyabkovDeputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.

"Strategic stability in its classical sense - the state of relations between Russia and the United States, in which the parties have no incentive to launch the first nuclear strike - was developed between the two countries during the Cold War.  The development of new types of weapons (including high-precision non-nuclear, hypersonic and space-based missile defense systems) has a direct impact on strategic stability. A major change in the balance of power between Russia and the United States could undermine stability, making the likelihood of a nuclear conflict more real," - Consultant to PIR Center and Researcher of the Center for Global Trends and International Organizations of the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Foreign Ministry Andrey Baklitskiy.

“Although I try to remain optimistic about the possibility of Russian-American dialogue in preparation for and during the NPT 2020 Review Conference ... I am becoming more and more skeptical, even worried and disappointed with how events are developing. In such difficult times, it is especially important to generate constructive and positive ideas, and I look forward to welcome them from the young generation of experts”, – PIR Center Director Vladimir Orlov.
