SUBJECT: GLOBAL INITIATIVE TO COMBAT NUCLEAR TERRORISM: RUSSIAN
RESPONSE TO ESTONIA'S OFFER TO DRAFT JOINT EDITORIAL

REF: State 35246

Sensitive But Unclassified, Protect Accordingly.

1. (SBU) On April 8, we delivered reftel inquiries regarding the
Estonian Prime Minister's idea to draft a three-way editorial on the
importance of international cooperation to combat nuclear
proliferation to Senior Counselor Vladimir Prokhorov, MFA Department
on New Challenges and Threats. Prokhorov told us that Russia does
not support the idea of Estonia drafting the joint editorial. In
the MFA's opinion, Estonia has just joined the GICNT and Russia has
not yet seen any plans or actions from Estonia that would warrant it
drafting this document.

2. (U) For future reference, Prokhorov indicated that the key MFA
points of contact for the GICNT are:

Oleg Vyacheslavovich Rozhkov (Deputy Director, Department for
Security and Disarmament Affairs (DVBR))

Alexey Yurievich Karpov (Senior Counselor, DVBR)

Olga Igorevna Kuznetsova (Secretary)

For routine GCINT actions, Senior Counselor Karpov would be the
appropriate point of contact. His email is a generic address in
DVBR - dvbr@mid.ru . Put his name in the subject line. His fax
(from the US) is 011 7 (495) 253-9082 or 9083.
