4-11 February 1945. The Yalta Conference and its consequences

The Yalta Conference of February 1945 was a new phase in ‘redrawing’ the map of the post-war world. However, it was not there that the division of Europe between Soviets and Anglo-Americans was decided, as is commonly thought. But some ambiguous provisions of the ‘Declaration of Liberated Europe’ offered Moscow the pretext of intervening in the internal politics of countries from its occupation zone in the name of defending democracy. Romania was the first country in which such an intervention took place, by imposing the pro-communist government led by Petru Groza.
