Abstract:

This memorandum considers the role played by the Red Army as an instrument of functional integration of all Soviet non-Russian nations and nationalities. The author asserts that the Army appears to be effective in attitudinal integration of autonomous and smaller nationalities, but has had little effect in counteracting ethnic nationalism of major union republic nations. She concludes that although this failure in attitudinal integration does not seem to be at present an important variable in the combat effectiveness of Soviet armed forces, it is perceived as a weakness in the Army and in the society at large.
