Abstract:

The tradition of the Russian and Soviet militaries has made them important elements in the political balance of power at this turning, point of history. The same tradition, however, requires that the militarys political intervention be legitimized by a civilian authority andor political movement. The military in Russia is likely to continue to seek political influence, but the thrust of this search will be narrowly limited, unless it is combined with a strong Russian nationalist movement.
