many years, has close ties with the

foreign assignments recently.
Soviet influence over foreign
Communist parties has suffered
a great decline in recent months
due to the ouster of Khrushchev,
a popular figure, and Communist
China's increasing strength and
influence. Many important Sovie!
political figures and party leaders
have become highly worried over
the situation and fear of Commu-
nist China has grown according
ly. Some Soviet officials feel a
stronger Soviet foreign policy
might alleviate the recent loss in
prestige and influence.

They postulate that a strong
Soviet response to U.S. actions in'
Viet Nam would help counteract'
the commanding influence held by
Communist China over Southeast
Asia. A newly reassertive Soviet
foreign policy might also return to
the fold foreign Communist par-
ties which have recently been wav-
ering in support for Communist
China or Russia.
Foreign Policy Risks
Of course, the Soviet Union, as
an industrialized, increasingly
prosperous nation, also faces risks
in a more aggressive foreign poli-
cy. Many Soviet leaders view the
recent detente wvith the West as
beneficial because it allows Russia
to devote increasing time and
money to further bolstering the
economy and alleviating agricul-
