Abstract
Such aspects of the proclaimed new Soviet military doctrine as 'reasonable sufficiency' and 'defensive strategy' are receiving considerable attention from Western observers. At the same time, relatively less attention is being paid to another facet of this doctrine: the transition from quantity to quality in providing for the defense needs of the Soviet Union, announced by Mikhail Gorbachev at the 19th Communist Party Conference in June 1988. From now on, the Soviet leader stated, the security of the USSR would rely not on quantitative factors, but on high quality of military manpower, military hardware and military science.
