"The message of the President to the Federal Assembly became a call to the West, a warning and at the same time a call to return to dialogue as equals, if not on economic issues, at least on military issues", – PIR Center Emerging Technologies and Global Security Project Director Vadim Kozyulin.


"If the previous Nuclear Posture Review adopted under President Obama envisioned decreasing role of nuclear weapons and reduction of nuclear arsenals, the new one suggests that nuclear weapons are an essential tool for ensuring US security, and they should be used for a variety of purposes. The reduction of nuclear stockpiles under the NPT is not foreseen in this document. The Review also argues that the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty will not be ratified," – PIR Center’s Consultant Andrey Baklitskiy claims.

Landmark 100th issue of Security Index Journal


In the spring of 2012 PIR Center reached a major milestone, the 100th issue of the Security Index journal was published. We tried to make the event memorable for our Russian and international readers as well.

To mark the occasion, we held three scientific and practical seminars, in Moscow, Geneva and Vienna, to present the 100th issue to a select Russian and international audience. We have discussed topical issues of nuclear nonproliferation, disarmament and nuclear security. The 100th issue was also be presented to delegates of the Preparatory Committee of the 2012 NPT Review Conference and other key international forums.

We have decided that the 100th issue will largely focus on the road the Security Index – and its predecessor, the Yaderny Kontrol – have travelled over the past nearly 20 years in studying issues of nonproliferation, nuclear arms control and nuclear security. Going back to our traditional roots in the 100th issue, we also look into the future, discussing key issues of the nuclear nonproliferation agenda for the 21st century.
