    << Back to Soviet Union (former) Government

    The Soviet Union interacted with other countries in a variety of ways, including diplomacy, arms transfers, state and government visits, use of communist parties abroad, front organizations, trade and aid, and educational exchanges. To achieve its general and regional foreign policy objectives, the Soviet Union made great efforts to sustain and increase relations over time. The Soviet physical and material presence in a state (which could be quantified by numbers of military and economic advisers and the amount of economic and military assistance) had traditionally been one indicator that, along with information about internal decision making, allowed Western analysts to theorize about the degree of Soviet influence on a particular state's foreign policy.
