The great development of modern weapons of mass destruction has caused enormous changes in military science including military doctrine and military strategy. However, these changes have not affected the concept of military budget. This article discusses the nature of Soviet's military build-up and examines the real size of its over-all military budget. The author presents a table of the composition of the Soviet state budget and the relative position of military expenditures during the last 25 years.
