MOSCOW, MARCH 11, 2013. PIR PRESS – Within the framework of the project “The Future of Global Partnership Program and Russia-US Cooperation in Nuclear Security” PIR Center established a Working Group that will analyze the prospects for Russian participation in international cooperation in the field of nonproliferation and nuclear security.

These topics continue to be  important after recent Russia’s decisions to withdraw from the International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) and to refuse to prolong the Agreement between the United States of America and the Russian Federation Concerning the Safe and Secure Transportation, Storage and Destruction of Weapons and Prevention of Weapons Proliferation from June 17, 1992 (the Nunn-Lugar Program)..JPG

Currently there is a need to formulate new mechanisms for international cooperation in the field of nonproliferation and nuclear security. Such mechanisms should correspond to modern realities and Russian interests. PIR Center Working Group activities are aimed at elaboration of expert recommendations on how to create such mechanisms taking into consideration both the issues of multilateral cooperation in nuclear security as well as bilateral US-Russian joint activities in the field.

The PIR Center Working Group includes the following experts:

  1. Dauren Aben, Senior Research Fellow at Kazakhstan Institute for Strategic Studies under the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan
  2. Anatoly Antonov, Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation.
  3. Robert Berls, Director of Moscow Office of the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI)
  4. Evgeny Buzhinsky, PIR Center Senior Vice President
  5. Alexander Cheban, PIR Center Research Fellow
  6. Dmitry Kovchegin, PIR Center Expert
  7. Vladimir Kuchinov, Advisor to the Director General at the State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom
  8. Aleksey Ubeev, Senior Nuclear Security Officer at the Nuclear Security Office of the Department of Nuclear Safety and Security of the IAEA

The Working Group will meet 2 times in 2013.  The first meeting will take place on March 28, 2013.

As a result, Working Group will prepare a Study which will be published in the Security Index Journal and will be presented at the international seminar in Moscow in October 2013.
