On March 12, 2020, an extended meeting of the Trialogue Club Internationaltookplace.Its topic was “50 Years after Ratification of the NPT by the Soviet Union and its Entry into Force: Lessons Learned and Prospects for Strengthening of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Regime”


Verification is a key and indispensable element of nuclear arms control and nuclear disarmament. Any substantive discussion on the future of strategic stability, nuclear arms race limitation, and the prospects for nuclear disarmament becomes pointless if it fails to address verification. To answer the question of what verification should look like in the future, leading Russian and foreign experts analyze the experience of the implementation of bilateral agreements between the Soviet Union/Russia and the United Sates and look at various international mechanisms. For the first time, Russian experts offer a comprehensive assessment of the approaches proposed by the International Partnership for Nuclear Disarmament Verification (IPNDV) and other new initiatives in this field.


"Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) poses a real threat to public safety and well-being. Europe has become the epicenter of the outbreak. The situation in Europe is getting worse by every hour. Although the situation in Russia is yet relatively safe, the fact that the pandemic is raging along the perimeter of Russia’s borders cannot be ignored. Risks for Russia are increasing",  Director of PIR Center Dr. Vladimir A. Orlov.
