Dear Sergey Mikhaylovich!

The staff of the Institute of USA and Canada RAS congratulates you with a significant date – a glorious 70th anniversary!


We have long known and appreciate you as an outstanding scientist with a worldwide reputation, who has made a great personal contribution to the development of international studies and Russian American studies, the author of many books and articles, as an organizer of science and a talented teacher.
Your name is associated with such fundamental values ​​as high scientific professionalism, rare human qualities, pedagogical skills. The development of these values ​​has allowed you to go through a large and complex life journey from a MGIMO student to an academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the scientific director of a major world-class research center.
Your entire creative biography is connected with our Institute: a postgraduate student, a junior and then a senior researcher in the foreign policy department, a sector head for the military-political research department, a leading research officer, the military-political research department head, and the deputy director of the Institute. Here you have prepared and defended your candidate and doctoral dissertations. For several years you have had the opportunity to be a representative of the Institute at the USSR Embassy in Washington.
In 1995, in a difficult time for science and the country, you headed ISCRAN, becoming its director. With a confident hand of a tested captain, you firmly held the helm of the ship and drove it in the right direction. You managed to rally around you a team of like-minded people, world-famous enthusiastic scientists, becoming the head of a unique scientific center, whose efforts over half a century study complex and contradictory processes of world politics, problems of international security, American studies and Canadian studies, publish hundreds of scientific works, prepare analytical materials for the highest state authorities of our country.
The range of your scientific interests is not limited to the sphere of military-political research and problems of international security – an area in which you have long been a recognized and undisputed leader. The breadth of the scientific outlook, the depth and thoroughness of scientific analysis, the prudence and reasonableness of the conclusions have become an integral part of your personality.
About 20 monographs and pamphlets, over 300 articles published in scientific and socio-political Russian and foreign periodicals belong to your pen. You are a member of many professional organizations: member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, member of the Academy of Natural Sciences of the Russian Federation, member of the Economic Council under the Government of the Russian Federation, member of the Scientific Expert Council under the Chairman of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, member of the Scientific Council under the Security Council of the Russian Federation, member of the Scientific Council Council of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, member of the Council on Foreign Policy at the Foreign Affairs Committee of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, President of the Center for National Security and International Relations Member of the Council of the Russian Foreign Policy Association; Vice-President of the Russian Pugwash Committee at the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences; Member of the United Nations Association; Member of the Editorial Board of the Journal USA and Canada: Economics, Politics, Culture; Chairman of the ISCRAN Dissertation Council.
Your work on problems of Russian-American relations and international security, as well as many years of vigorous activity in numerous international organizations, interviews and speeches have earned you a great and well-deserved authority, which largely holds the reputation of our Institute.
Thanks to the efforts of the team led by you, studies have been prepared on the modern economy, politics of the USA and Canada, and on Russian-American and Russian-Canadian relations. Works published by ISCRAN on merit are estimated by the best domestic and foreign experts. Within the walls of the Institute, highly qualified scientific personnel were trained, whose names have been well known for a long time, many of them became the creators of their own scientific schools, confirming their high authority with all their activities.

The Faculty of World Politics GAUGN, created and headed by you, serves as a vivid example of how fruitful is the combination of a high level of specialist training with serious scientific research. This made it possible to introduce dozens of school graduates from different cities of Russia to the study of world politics and international security, American studies and Canadian studies, and it deserved general recognition among the country’s long-established universities.
We all see and appreciate your tremendous efforts, which allow ISKRAN not only to exist, but also to be at the forefront of advanced scientific political thought in our complex, so rapidly and radically changing world. We all thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this!
