Abstract : Table of contents include: The Issue of Stability; The Economy; Social Stability; Ethnic Tensions; Centrifugal Trends; Civil Society and Political Stability; Russian-Ukrainian Relations; The Role of the Military; Some Conclusions; and Developments for Regional Security. The issue of stability in Soviet successor states has attracted a great deal of attention in the West because of a continuing preoccupation with the Soviet legacy and fears that the region will remain a zone of unrest that may eventually require some form of significant Western intervention. Following the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the most immediate concern was the fate of its nuclear weapons and accompanying production facilities. Ukraine attracted special attention because of fears that its leaders might attempt to gain operational control of the large number of nuclear weapons on its territory in 1991.
