A survey and elaboration of open-source information on the growth of total Soviet military outlays since 1955. As the first detailed review of what is and is not known about Soviet military outlays, the study may also contribute to the discussion on budgetary disarmament. The starting point of the analysis is the explicit Soviet budget allocation to "defense." After concluding that additional military outlays, over and above this defense appropriation, must be presumed to exists, the rest of the Memorandum is devoted to the estimation of concealed expenditures and the evaluation of these estimates.
