The Soviet Union and the NWFZN Proposal in the 1980s

  • Ingemar Lindahl


In 1971 the 24th Congress of the CPSU adopted the ‘Soviet Peace Programme’, containing sweeping proposals on security and disarmament — such as the disbanding of the two military alliances, the renunciation of the use or threat of force and the banning of nuclear weapons. The objective concerning Europe was most clearly specified: ‘finally recognising the territorial changes that took place in Europe as a result of World War II, achieving a turn towards detente and peace on that continent’.
