The National Interest article on ELN NATO – Russia statement, co-authored by ELN Director Adam Thomson, published by Russia Matters project

Throughout 2020 the ELN has lent its support to an extended series of detailed senior expert discussions led by ELN members Sergey Rogov and Alexey Gromyko on how NATO and Russia might reduce the risk of inadvertent conflict. The experts group has comprised some 30 people including retired diplomats and military officers from the United States, Russia and Europe. The recommendations that have come out of these discussions, signed by 145 people from 20 countries, including 48 ELN network members, call on leaders in the US, Russia and Europe to demonstrate the political will necessary to take a number of urgent actions in order to reduce the risks of military conflict. The full text in English, Russian, French and Polish can be found here.

The National Interest article promoting the recommendations, co-authored by the ELN Director Adam Thomson, Sergey Rogov, and Alexander Vershbow, was published on the Russia Matters website here.
