Abstract : Despite its prominence, Soviet naval activity in the Mediterranean remains a quantity of largely unknown dimensions. The report is an attempt to specify a number of those dimensions somewhat more closely than has heretofore appeared possible. No claim is made for either exhaustiveness or precision. These data will not support that. They do not even deal directly with Soviet activity in the Mediterranean. They do, nevertheless, come from a credible source, and provide an empirical basis for making some rough approximations regarding that activity. (Author)
