ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the international relationship between the Soviet Union and Germany. The recent Soviet move in the Berlin situation is a clear signal that, from the standpoint of Moscow's interests, time has now run out. The Soviet governments has shown no serious interest in any of the Western proposals of recent years to have an agreement on Germany. The article attempts to answer whether the Soviet Government could afford to get out of Eastern Europe. Also, it gives a description of the possibility of reunification of Germany. Furthermore, the article has a dominant focus on the problem of disengagement and the Soviet control of Eastern Europe.
