ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the substance of the secret speech made by Soviet politician, Leonid Ilich Brezhnev in Prague, Czechoslovakia according to a report made by the newspaper, "Boston Globe." According to the report, Brezhnev described detente as a ruse designed to lead to a decisive shift in the balance of power. He stated that they are achieving with detente what their predecessors have been unable to achieve using the mailed fist. They have been able to accomplish more in a short time with detente than was done for years pursuing a confrontation policy with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. While reviewing the situation in Western Europe, he said that Finland is in the Soviet bloc, Norway remains troublesome, but trends are moving in the right direction and Denmark is no longer a viable element of Western strength.
