Abstract : The author discusses the disintegration of order along Russia's southern border. He analyzes the state of the Russian economy, the breakup of the USSR, and, by extension, the Russian armed forces. The author concludes that the growth of nationalism among the states in the Caucasus and Central Asia has combined with the decline in capability of the Russian Army to encourage many of the states to seek greater autonomy from Russian influence.
