Excerpt: Kev Judgments The Winter of the Soviet Military: Cohesion or Collapse?- * Forces unleashed by the collapse of the Soviet system are breaking up its premier artifact-the Soviet military; the high command cannot halt this process. While a centralized command and control system continues to operate, political and economic collapse is beginning to fragment the military into elements loyal to the republics or simply devoted to self-preservation. These forces include: - Fragmentation: - Republic action to take control of units, equipment, and facilities could provoke conflicts of loyalty within the armed forces. - Shortages of basic necessities are prompting commanders of major formations to seek ties to local political bodies, - Commanders who do not receive local support may act on their own to seize or extort basic necessities. - Shortages: - Housing shortfalls continue to undermitle morale and cohesion. - Traditionally first in line for high-tech resources, the military now has difficulty obtaining food and fuel. - Triple-digit inflation and the lack of a military budget threaten pay.
