Yazov stressed the utility of conducting 'a surprise counter-preparation' by launching fire and aviation strikes against the entire depth of the attacker's operational deployments and conducting intense electronic warfare to disrupt the enemy's ability to control his troops and forces. Such actions could bring about the defeat of the attacker and create the conditions for the counter-offensive. 42 They did, however, only set the stage for the decisive counter-offensive. Thus, General of the Army Yazov still kept strategic defence in a theatre-strategic operation subordinated to the offensive, which remained the instrument of war termination.
These developments in the area of military art and technology coincided with the reformulation of Soviet military doctrine and provided a militarytechnical rationale regarding the increased feasibility of premeditated defence. General of the Army Dmitriy Yazov, the newly appointed Soviet Minister of Defence, addressed this problem in 1987. In his presentation it was clear that the so-called 'Kursk paradigm' for a successful premeditated defence and a subsequent counter-offensive had infused new content into an old category.
On the Soviet side, it has brought into sharp relief profound differences over the meaning of such terms as 'reasonable sufficient defence', and 'sufficient defence', and led to sharp exchanges between civilian and military analysts, the former championing more openness and less secrecy about military matters, and the latter charging their civilian colleagues with 'incompetent' commentary on issues best left to professional soldiers. 5 SOVIET MILITARY DOCTRINE AND THE DEMILITARISATION OF EAST-WEST RELATIONS Profound changes in Soviet military doctrine started in 1985, when, at the April Plenum of the CPSU Central Committee, a new Soviet leadership began to articulate new concepts of security and to seek to remove those issues which had been at the source of Western anxiety.
