- This article discusses Soviet policy toward Central America, the Caribbean, and members of the Contadora group, and it compares the Soviet approach with Cuban policy. Since the 1970s Latin America has become a major center of interest to the Soviet Union. Soviet policy toward the region can best be characterized as a low-risk, low-profile strategy, in light of U.S. competition and interests. Current policy is one of continuity from the Brezhnev era. The article offers special highlights on Nicaragua and El Salvador and the Soviet dynamic with the Contadora group. El Salvador and the Contadora group are seen as sharing interests in the region with respect to political stability and economic development.
