«The situation for the upcoming presidential term looks rather difficult, as economic problems will put even stronger pressure on the regime, and the propensity to negotiate and reach an agreement will be reduced. However, this does not mean that Iran will seek to develop nuclear weapons or decide to withdraw from the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons», ‒ Yulia Sveshnikova, PIR Center Consultant.

«Strategic stability in Russian-American relations... What to expect from Iran's missile program... What are the chances that the DPRK will abandon nuclear weapons... How to 3D-print a drone and what this means for the arms control regime... Does nuclear energy have a future in the Middle East ... These are just some of the topics we were discussing for the last two evenings and into the night, connecting Moscow, California, New York, Yekaterinburg, Seoul ... “Discuss” is the exact word. But, strictly speaking, it was students from different countries who reported to the members of the State Examination Commission headed by General of the Army Vyacheslav Trubnikov. And MGIMO University, PIR Center and Middlebury Institute of International Studies “connected the wires”. Students are now masters. The Dual Degree M.A. Program Global Security, Nuclear Policy, and WMD Nonproliferation has taken a new qualitative step forward. And has confirmed that this master's program is not just “international”, not just “unique”, but also with a stable quality mark», ‒ Vladimir Orlov, PIR Center Director, MGIMO Professor and Academic Advisor of the Dual Degree M.A. Program Global Security, Nuclear Policy, and WMD Nonproliferation.
