Abstract : Some recent developments in the Soviet civil defense program are described. Differences between foreign and domestic Soviet propaganda on civil defense are listed, and a debate among the Soviet leaders on the value of civil defense is described -- a debate that was resolved at the May 1962 Congress of DOSAAF (the civil volunteer organization). Recent vigorous endorsement of DOSAAF by Party and press may be one indication of impending changes in Soviet domestic and foreign policies. (Author)
