The Soviet Military: Glasnost' Against Secrecy
MetadataShow full item record
The Soviet military has cloaked itself in extreme secrecy for decades. Under Mikhail Gorbachev, the secrecy has been challenged by military glasnost'- namley, acceptance by the Soviet Union of confidence-building measures and verification of agreements on arms control through on-site inspections, the publication of the Soviet military budget, and an open debate on various aspects of military budget, and an open debate on various aspects of military policy. Soviet military officals themselves are beginning to talk about glasnost' and even "transparency" as major instruments of the security policy of their country. The United States and NATO have concluded a number of arms-control agreements with the Soviets.
