The Spanish Civil War and events leading to it seem to illustrate well one of the most perplexing features of Soviet foreign policy, namely, its ability to call forth diverse and contradictory reactions to its diplomacy. According to Edward Crankshaw, the foreign policy of the Soviet Union seems less obscure and more coherent than that of other countries in its basic and distant objectives, yet in its immediate aims and in the motivations behind its day-to-day diplomacy it frequently appears incoherent, fickle, and puzzling.
