The year as seen from Moscow : U.S.-Soviet relations in review
Hyland, William G.
Margaret Ozmer and guests discuss U.S.-Soviet relations.
1983 was a year of war and revolution throughout the globe, making peace an allusive goal. The relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union was not improving and while both sides may have agreed upon the significance of the year’s events, their interpretations varied. With the rigidity of the Soviet rule, outsiders, as well as it’s own citizens, can only speculate upon how the year looked for the Kremlin. Sitting in for Peter Krogh, Margaret Ozmer leads a discussion between Senior Associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and former Deputy Assistant in National Security to President Ford, William Hyland, and former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski. With confusion over leadership in the Soviet Union, the Red Army in a costly struggle in Afghanistan, the shooting down of a Korean jet liner, and an invasion in Granada, Hyland and Brzezinski agree the Soviets must have viewed 1983 as a difficult year. But, with is greatest enemy, the United States, mired in conflicts in the Middle East and in Central America, the Soviet’s decline on a broader scale seems less significant.
