“As a journalist I know well how much more open and straight forward officials are when in an off the record modus. The upcoming discussions within the Trialogue Club International format in 2020 will give us all – so I hope – the possibility to better and deeper understand Russia’s foreign and security policy, to ask frank questions and get sincere answers”, - Dr. Elena V. Chernenko, Co-Chair, Trialogue Club International, PIR Center Executive Board member, Deputy Foreign Editor, Kommersant Daily.

Russian-American Dialogue on Global Security

Russian-American dialogue on global security issues has been among PIR Center's priorities for many years. With the current deteriorating state of the bilateral relations, the importance of such dialogue between the two countries has been increasigly growing over the past few years, a tendency that will expectedly remain valid for many years ahead. 

In 2016, PIR Center in partnership with Centre russe d’etudes politiques (Geneva, Switzerland) and James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (Monterey, USA) renewed its efforts to promote Track 1.5 dialogue between Russia and the United States by establishing a high-level US-Russian Working Group on the NPT Review Process. In 2017, another initiative by the three institutions was launched that brought leading experts on arms control and strategic stability from the two countries to form Working Group on Strategic Stability and De-escalation in US-Russian Relations.
