"The world watches almost indifferently as the arms control architecture that saved us from a nuclear catastrophe during the cold war collapses today. Against the background of current news about trade wars, terrorist acts and impeachment they may seem like relics of a bygone 20th century - ABM, INF, CFE, START treaties. In February 2021, the new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty will expire. It must be prolonged, for without it humanity will go blindfolded into the future through a minefield."

"Strategic stability, according to a basic understanding, means the relationship between Russia and the United States, when both sides have no incentives to launch a first nuclear strike. It was defined during the Cold War. Development of new arms technologies, including highprecision non-nuclear, hypersonic weapons and space-based missile defense systems, makes an impact on strategic stability. A significant shift in balance of power between Russia and the United States can undermine stability, increasing the risk of nuclear conflict," - Consultant to PIR Center and Researcher of the Center for Global Trends and International Organizations of the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Foreign Ministry Andrey Baklitskiy.

I am becoming more and more skeptical, even worried and disappointed with how events are developing. In such difficult times, it is especially important to generate constructive and positive ideas, and I look forward to welcome them from the young generation of experts”, – PIR Center Director Vladimir Orlov.
