These partnerships have made the world safer by engaging thousands of highly-skilled Russian aerospace engineers and scientists in commercial pursuits, thereby fulfilling cooperative threat reduction objectives. Moreover, because this is being done on a company-to-company basis, there is no expenditure of public funds and the opportunities to effect real change in the way business is carried...
Page 55 - Chernomyrdin) to enhance the energy earnings of their weapons customers Iran, Iraq and Syria and have tried to finance these efforts through similar bond sales on the US market. Thus, October of 1997, GAZPROM announced it would violate the Iran-Libya Sanctions Act and help Iran develop Iran's off-shore gas fields. It was scheduled to issue $3 billion in bonds in the US in November of 1997 (and was expected to follow with $10-18 billion or more in additional bond offerings on world markets) when public...
Page 43 - Committee on International Relations March 25. 1999 Russian Foreign Policy: Proliferation to Rogue Regimes R. James Woolsey Shea & Gardner Mr. Chairman, members of the Committee. It is an honor to be asked to testify before you today on this vital subject. In a five minute opening statement, explication is really impossible, but let me try at least to identify a few key issues that bear upon this important question. First of all, an important part of the problem of Russian proliferation to rogue...
Page 65 - ... appear here today and offer my observations on the issue of trade sanctions as a policy tool in general; and, in particular, on the current situation involving the de facto use of sanctions on a commercial space launch venture by failing to lift the current trade quota on the Russian Proton vehicle. By way of background, I served 34 Vi years with the CIA culminating in the position of Deputy Director of Central Intelligence. Following my government service, I was President and CEO of Lockheed...
Page 58 - ... and space technology. Russia has accommodated or appears willing to accommodate China in all of these areas. It has sold China a range of electronics; air-toair and surface-to-air missiles and air defense systems; armored fighting vehicles and T72 tanks; and SU-27 fighters (including, in April 1996, the license to manufacture this aircraft.)

Page 13 - Without objection, the complete statement will be made part of the record. Please proceed. Mr. McMAHON. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. And I do appreciate the opportunity to appear here today and offer my observations on the issue of Russian proliferation to rogue states and terrorist groups.

(l) "This One XAG7-BD7-H2A9 I believe that today's topic, "Russian Proliferation," is a good starting point for our Committee's assessment of Russian foreign policy.
Page 67 - America's launch and satellite industries strong. I believe that the two-track strategy the United States has pursued— vigorously opposing Russian entities that do proliferate, while promoting commercial engagement with Russian entities to provide incentives for them to refrain from proliferating or doing business with proliferators— is fundamentally sound. Last summer, and earlier this year, the United States imposed sanctions against Russian entities found to be assisting others in the development...
Page 54 - Russia became addicted to military production during the Cold War and it has yet to shake the habit Even the precipitous decline in domestic demand for military and nuclear goods since 1991 has done little to force economic restructuring.

Their continued need for capital has been supplied through an increased reliance on exports and domestic barter style...
Page 36 - Everybody assumes that if you have a satellite, you can go someplac 3 and get someone to shoot it into the sky right on demand. They may be wrong. Mr. HERMAN. Do you mean if you lift the cap today they could not take advantage of it because they do not have the launch capability to do more than — I do not think that is correct. Mr. SOKOLSKI. Well, the folks that I have talked with in the industry and at RAND have difficulty finding someone to do those launches in the year 2000. Now, after 2000...
