February 26, 1987

U.S. intelligence agencies have uncovered evidence that the Soviets are dismantling missile-defense radar systems at Sary Shagan, one of their missile test centers, in Kazakhstan. Informed sources said some State Department officials view the dismantling as a bid to address U.S. claims of Soviet violations of the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, which limits defenses against nuclear missiles. Pentagon officials, however, are contending that the Soviets might be preparing to install more modern equipment.
