Abstract:

We are pleased to be here today to discuss our reviews of U.S. programs to reduce the threats that the former Soviet Unions weapons of mass destruction pose to U.S. national security. Since 1991, Congress has authorized the Departments of Defense DOD, Energy DOE, and State to help Russia and other newly independent states control and eliminate weapons of mass destruction and to reduce the risks of their proliferation. My statement is based on the 20 reports we have issued over the past 8 years that address various aspects of these programs. Today, I will present our overall observations regarding these programs cost and impact. As you requested, I will also suggest some questions that you may wish to consider as this Subcommittee reviews current and future budget requests for these programs.
