SENATE S 3963 tiative, when the Soviets are breaking out of the treaty. President Reagan has confirmed that the Krasnoyarsk radar is an ABM Treaty violation in six reports to the Congress. But what is significant is that publicly and in private diplomatic channels, the Soviets have rebutted our charge, and have repeatedly claimed that the Krasnoyarsk radar does not violate the ABM Treaty. The Russians claim it is for space tracking, is therefore not constrained by the treaty, and therefore can be located anywhere. Mr. President, I have recently learned something very disturbing which the American people need to know. I have worked carefully and closely with CIA to declassify this piece of information. I have today a piece of important declassified intelli- gence which effectively rebuts the Soviet claims of innocence regarding the Krasnoyarsk radar. The Central ,Intfiliffence Agency haetoday stated the following; - The United States is aware that, over the last several years, Soviet officials have indi- cated that the Krasnoyarsk radar is a viola- tion of the ABM Treaty. Moreover, the So- viets have also admitted that the Pechora radar is an early warning radar. The Pe- chora radar is identical to the Krasnoyarsk radar. It is therefore not a space tracking radar. It is an early warning radar. There- fore, the Soviets have actually admitted that they have violated the ABM Treaty. This Soviet admission contradicts their dis- information, lies, propaganda and duplicity. This Soviet admission shows just how irrelevant our debate over 'U.S. compliance interpretations really is. Mr. President, there is a second point. A recently declassified judg- ment of the President's March 1987 report to Congress on Soviet arms con- trol noncompliance which discloses: In totality, these activities provide a strong basis for concern that the U.S.S.R. might have an integrated plan for an ABM defense of its national territory, and might be working toward it. Thus the President has indicated that the Soviets are no doubt working on a nationwide ABM defense?a de- fense prohibited by the ABM Treaty. The ABM Treaty's article I prohibits the nationwide ABM defense, or even the base for a nationwide ABM de- fense. Finally Mr. President, the Penta- gon's annual report, "Soviet Military Power 1987" released on Tuesday states: The growing network of large phased- array radars, of which the Krasnoyarsk radar is a part, is of particular concern when linked with other Soviet ABM efforts. These radars take years to construct, and their existence could allow the Soviet Union to move , quickly to deploy a nationwide ABM defense. Taken together . . . all of their ABM and ABM related activities-sug- gest that the Soviets may be preparing an ABM defense of their nation. Mr. President, let us now get on with our debate over U.S. compliance with the ABM Treaty, but let us keep in mind that our compliance is being con- ducted while the Soviets are admitting studies, among other things; to the Commit- that they are breaking out of the tee on Governmental Affaii-s.
