Abstract : The magnitude of environmental devastation throughout the Former Soviet Union is becoming more apparent as the countries transition to democracy and they more openly discuss their past practices, current problems, and future direction. This study explores the strategic implications of Russia's environmental problems. It endeavors to answer several related questions: Should the United States be concerned about the environmental devastation that exists in Russia? How severe is the problem? What are the ramifications? What corrective action is Russia taking? How is the United States helping?
