The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) launched the Russian translation of SIPRI Yearbook 2018 at an event in Moscow, held cooperation with the Primakov National Research Institute of World Economy and International Relations (IMEMO). The launch event featured a special supplement to the translation entitled Russia: Arms Control, Disarmament and International Security.
The event took place on 17 October with discussions focusing on multilateral arms controls; the reduction and limitation of strategic nuclear weapons; and military spending. The launch opened with a speech by Dr Alexey G. Arbatov, Head of the Center for International Security at IMEMO.
Several senior figures from IMEMO also gave presentations, including Dr Vladimir Baranovsky, member of the SIPRI Governing Board, and Head of Research of the Center for Situational Analysis. The event gathered 80 representatives of various government ministries, diplomatic missions, institutions of the Russian Academy of Sciences, independent research centers and the media.
The translation was made possible primarily because of the cooperation between IMEMO, the Russian Academy of Sciences and SIPRI.
