Abstract : The author examines the defense sector's current crisis which has come about due to the collapse of the Soviet Union and of the Russian economy. Russia's strategic dilemma--the gap between the state's ambitions and objectives and the means of realizing them-- must be resolved. Should Russia continue to fail to meet the challenge of overcoming an economy excessively geared to defense, prospects for the security of Russia's neighbors and for Russia's democratization remain dim. In the final analysis, the crisis of Russia's defense economy is a vital part of the ongoing crisis of the Russian State. (MM)
