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.

“Special consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council will enhance weight and authority of your organization in Russian and international NGO-community. Using this new opportunity to broaden international outreach of PIR Center's activities is on the top of the agenda,” the Director of the Department of International Organizations, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Gennady Gatilov noted in his letter to the PIR Center.

From now on, PIR Center can send its recommendations to the Council and cooperate more actively with the UN bodies in different formats.

“Acquisition of the special consultative status with ECOSOC is an honor for our organization. We view this decision as an acknowledgment of our experience in Russia and abroad and an expression of trust from one of the main UN institutions which coordinates social and economic development issues. PIR Center and our experts are now facing new opportunities to bring our ideas and proposals to the UN institutions in the intersecting areas of sustainable development and global security, primarily in spheres of nuclear energy and nuclear nonproliferation,” President of the PIR Center Vladimir Orlov said.
