Tradition and renewal is the only way we will prevent ourselves from stagnation. On this occasion, I welcome Lyubov Soldatkina as a new member of the Executive Board, who worked at PIR Center in 2009-2010 and since then has made an impressive professional breakthrough. I am counting on her experience, ideas and creativity,” PIR Center founder Vladimir Orlov said. I am glad to see the majority of the members and guests of the Executive Board at the meeting in a cheerful mood and in a fully face-to-face format. I am grateful to those members of the Executive Board who, despite coronas and quarantines, have joined us online. I am grateful to my predecessor Albert Zulkharneev, who has applied lots of efforts to our organization, and now he helps a lot in its development as a consultant to the PIR Center.”

Vladimir Orlov voiced the main conclusion that was made following the results of the Executive Board, “Program design and development work is on the rise. Good job well done in this odd year, no allowances for its oddities. We are finalizing this year worthily. Let's enter the new year dynamically.”
