“Vienna document is a good example of a politically binding agreement having a verification mechanism.

“How can people escape from a well-trodden path in their journey? It’s actually quite simple: they just need to veer off from the beaten track. Whenever I travel with companions – preferably locals – who help me on my own journeys, my recipe is to convince them that the beaten track is not for us. Ideally, our own path should lead to the deepest, darkest forest… That’s the kind of forest I like best. It’s a synonym of freedom for me.” – PIR Center Founder and Special Advisor Vladimir Orlov.
