A general method is presented for evaluating, in a model - independent way, the soft virtual photon radiative corrections to an arbitrary hadronic process. It is shown that all the results concerning infrared divergence s obtained within the theory of quantum electrodynamic s of the electron-photon system are, in fact, exact in strong interactions. The problem of radiative corrections to low-energy theorems is the primary concern of this investigation.
