This letter was sent as a follow-up to the CND sending a delegation to Moscow to meet with the Soviet Peace Committee, and expresses the hopes that the two organisations can collaborate more closely in the future.
December 6, 1983
Letter, Yuri Zhukov, President of the Soviet Peace Committee, to Bruce Kent
This document was made possible with support from London School of Economics and Political Science & The Open University
In this letter, Zhukov sets out how, from the Soviet perspective, the Soviets have been working towards peace but the deployment of Cruise and Pershing missiles in Western Europe derailed arms control talks in Geneva and has made the international situation markedly worse. He invites the CND to work with the Soviet Union "to further our common struggle for a nuclear-free Europe."
