The Soviet Union itself is divided into 16 military districts. The Soviet term–teatr voennykh deistv–has been variously translated in Western writings as Theater of Military Opera. Outside estimates of Soviet military spending ranged between 10 and 20 percent of GDP, and, even within the Soviet Union itself, it was difficult to produce an exact accounting because the military budget involved a variety of government ministries, each with its own competing interests.
