“The Middle East remains one of the zones of high tension and instability in the contemporary world. We should, however, admit that 2019 was marked by an important event in the sphere of non-proliferation of WMD - the November UN Conference on the Establishment of a Middle East Zone Free of Nuclear Weapons and Other Weapons of Mass Destruction - which can be described as generally successful, at least much more successful than anticipated,” - write Vladimir Orlov and Natalia Artemenkova in their article «A WMD-Free Zone in the Middle East: The Road Toward It as Seen From Moscow», which was published in “International Affairs” in English.

This paper is devoted to analyzing external sources of financial support of terrorism in the North Caucasus – a region of the Russian Federation notorious for the military crackdown on the Chechen insurgency in the 1990s and the continuous terrorist activity which has led to hundreds of attacks against civilian and military targets throughout Russia. The author brings together scant pieces of information on the topic to present a study that could contribute to designing better law-enforcement and security practices intended to disrupt the financing of terrorism in Russia from abroad. This research is based on open sources and may serve as a framework for further investigation with the use of classified data by specialized agencies.

No. 7 (1998): Military Reform and Civil Control over Armed Forces in Russia (In Russian).

7.jpgThis publication pursues a double objective. First, it analyzes the reorganization of the Russian armed forces initiated in the summer of 1997 as well as preceding discussions, and assesses its compliance with the tasks of adapting the military machine to new national security needs and, which is equally important, economic capabilities of the country. Second, it discusses the main components of civil control over the armed forces and evaluates their implementation in present-day Russia. Especially valuable is the analysis of governmental agencies responsible for the management and control of the armed forces, and their capabilities for encouraging in-depth military reform.
