"Strategic stability in its classical sense - the state of relations between Russia and the United States, in which the parties have no incentive to launch the first nuclear strike - was developed between the two countries during the Cold War.  The development of new types of weapons (including high-precision non-nuclear, hypersonic and space-based missile defense systems) has a direct impact on strategic stability. A major change in the balance of power between Russia and the United States could undermine stability, making the likelihood of a nuclear conflict more real," - 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.

"US-Russia relations have not been at such a dangerously low level since the end of the cold war," - Cynthia Lazaroff, documentary filmmaker/producer, founder of US-Russian exchange initiatives, environmental activist and Bruce Allyn, Senior Fellow, Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School.

“Although I try to remain optimistic about the possibility of Russian-American dialogue in preparation for and during the NPT 2020 Review Conference ... 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.
