The Soviet Line

September 1981
National Review;9/4/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 17, p999
The article focuses on political specialist Georgy Arbatov's views on the restraint imposed by the U.S. on the Soviet Union as a precondition for mutual collaboration. While State Secretary Alexander Haig may see the Soviet restraint as a moderation or reserve, Arbatov views differently, that is, as a means to compel behavior and disintegrate Soviet Union. The restraint is also viewed as renouncing arms control altogether while at the same time preparing to levy deliberate war against the Soviet Union. The restraint is seen as a move toward contention, confrontation and combat and away from accommodation, amelioration and amity.
