ABSTRACT
The article focuses on East German leaders' pronouncements that apparently imitate a policy enunciated by Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev in 1968 known as the Brezhnev Doctrine. It provides rationale for the defense of socialist allies threatened by imperialism. This doctrine proved to be a warning to the Western powers and to NATO to keep hands off the domain that Russia had carved out for itself in Eastern Europe during and immediately after World War II. Erich Honecker, an East German leader declared in a speech that the class mission of the armed forces is to defend effectively, the socialist system and the peaceable life of the citizens of the socialist community against all attacks by the aggressive forces of imperialism and reaction.
