Military Law Review

Introduction: In the late months of 1956 and during 1957 the USSR negotiated agreements with four other Communist states, agreements which at first blush describe a new relationship 2 between the Communist bloc leadership and those bloc states where Soviet troops are stationed and which have obligations of mutual defense and collective security. Taken together and with their supplemental agreements those pacts weave a neat pattern of legal formality, a tightly wrapped ball of clearly stated principles with a consistency disturbed by only a few visibly loose ends. These agreements, the Soviet status of forces documents, or more accurately called base rights treaties, remain in comparative obscurity, possibly belying their true importance. It is the purpose of this study to endeavor to unravel the loose ends, to search out whatever substance the documents may contain, and to put in proper perspective the agreements and what they represent.
