Abstract:

This report surveys Soviet strategic arms reduction proposals for the period 1982 to 1987. It then analyzes Soviet attitudes and policies toward key elements of the U.S. approach to the Strategic Arms Reduction Talks, including U.S. proposals for deep cuts, throw weight limitations, reductions in heavy ICBMs, and warheads as a unit of limitation. It concludes with an assessment of Soviet interest in substantial strategic arms reductions, and the prospects for compliance with a prospective START agreement.
