Abstract
The paper argues that one of Soviet major long-range policy goals is to speed the demise of capitalism through economic strangulation, by compromising Western influence in the Third World on whose raw materials the West vitally depends. The Soviet Navy has in this an important role to play: by constraining Western reaction to adverse developments in the Third World, Soviet naval presence in strategically key areas makes it easier for the various indigenous forces hostile to the West to assert themselves against Western pressures. Seen in this context, Soviet naval activities around the world are interpreted as contributing to the acquisition of geo-strategic positions from which the final coup de grace will be delivered to the collapsing capitalist West.
