“Joe Biden has already begun forming a “shadow National Security Council”, which includes several dozen working groups. According to media reports, the leading roles in this structure are played by Biden's most trusted advisers: former Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who is tipped for the position of Secretary of State or National Security Advisor; Jake Sullivan, ex- Director of Policy Planning in the State Department; Avril Haynes, ex-Deputy Director of the CIA; Michele Flournoy, former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy. Staffing base of the "shadow NSС" is the analytical centers of the democratic administration, the most prominent among which are the Center for New American Security and the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, founded by Biden himself" – this is the leitmotiv of the 525th issue of Yaderny Kontrol.

“It is important that PIR Center, along with other socially significant public organizations, will be able to take advantage of the support measures provided by the state. The inclusion in the register indicates that the organization is among the active community of NGOs and has a good reputation, which was confirmed during the implementation of specific projects. I’m sure that during this difficult time, support measures from the state will allow the PIR Center to more easily overcome the consequences of the pandemic faced by the Russian “third sector”, – Dmitry Polikanov, Advisor to the Head of the All-Russia People's Front Executive Committee, PIR Center Executive Board member.
