ABSTRACT
The article assesses the state of the dissident movement in the Soviet Union as of 1983. It argues that the apparent weakness of the dissident movement comes from a misconception than from the actual state of the movement. It comments on the poor coverage of the dissident movement by Western and U.S. journalists as evidenced by the focus on celebrity-oriented intellectuals. It also analyzes the groups that pose greater potential problem to the Soviet regime. It identifies the Russification of the Soviet republics as the most dangerous threat to the Soviet regime.
