We are going to discuss an important milestone in the history of nuclear nonproliferation ‒ the public reports of the Russian SVR dated 1993 and 1995, the preparation and public nature of which were initiated by Yevgeny Primakov. Today, these reports are an irreplaceable «handbook» for both students and experts specializing in nuclear nonproliferation. Moreover, our meeting is intended for the «PIR younger generations», junior experts in the field of nuclear nonproliferation and disarmament», ‒ Vladimir Orlov, Director of PIR Center.

 “Everything that occurs within the framework of the OSCE in matters of international information security, belongs to the sphere of confidence building measures, i.e. all of this, by definition, should be considered as military issues. However, for some reason this fact is often overlooked. And it is overlooked in vain. A factual acknowledgement by the OSCE member states of the existence of wars in cyberspace (and the use of information techniques) in modern international relations and a desire to carry out these wars as humanely as possible, ‘building confidence’, stems from that fact” — Alexander Fedorov, PIR Center Advisory Board Member.

The latest issue of the Security Index journal is partly devoted to the development of the global nuclear energy sector and nuclear infrastructure. Against the backdrop of the oil-and-gas needle and amid the continued devaluation of the Russian currency, the Russian nuclear energy sector seems to offer what may well be the only tangible, comprehensive, and carefully thought-out answer to economic upheavals. This particular branch of the Russian high-tech sector is not a prototype but a working engine.

“The CyberModule classes at the PIR Center International School gave me a powerful professional boost and allowed me to become acquainted with leading Russian information security and internet governance experts.  I especially anticipated lectures with focus on the Runet regulation, analysis of identification on the internet and other topics; such lectures fully lived up to all expectations. I awant to note the importance of the debates and other interactive exercises, which give impetus to further independent study of these issues,” – Olga Bogdanovich, Ph.D. student in the department of Russian, Slavic and General Linguistics at Taurida National V.I.Vernadsky University.
