The Current Wisdom

Freeman, Neal B.
August 1981
National Review;8/21/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 16, p948
The article profiles Arkady Shevchenko, advisor of Soviet Foreign Affair Minister Andrei Gromyko. Until April 1978, Shevchenko was indistinguishable from his political colleagues. However, he quickly advanced to the bureaucratic field by gaining the position of Ambassador Extraordinary. Later, he became the Under Secretary General of the United Nations. The views of Shevchenko on several political issues such as the Soviet mission to New York, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, and Cuban leader Fidel Castro are presented.
