    you just need to know that at Yalta, ours were “taxing”, and I.V. Stalin, only favorably, as the master of the situation, received guests who had “damp in diapers.” (And yes, too-IVS, many indulgences made the Anglo-Saxons, his mistake)

        Two important points: the future creation of the UN and the entry of the USSR into the war against Japan.

        interesting nuances. For example, why did they decide to consider France a winning country and introduce them into the permanent membership of the UN.
        Where are the documents that the Allies agree to transfer the USSR to the Kuril Islands and Hokkaido?

          The ONLY REASON FOR SAVING GUESTINE DOCUMENTS is the probability of harming us.
          99% of the documentation can be declassified after 50 years of storage.
          Especially those whose declassification can be beneficial.
          ALL DOCUMENTS relating to the 2nd World War and summing up its results must be declassified!

            However, often classified is not clear why. For example, documents on co-establishment of Poland. What could harm us? But our enemies, using the information vacuum, advanced their view of events. There are many examples, but the fact itself indicates that on our part there is no clearly worked out line of behavior.

          Actually, a strange question about the Kuril Islands and Hokkaido: like "sharing the skins of an unkilled bear." It is clear today that the defeat of the Kwantung Army went so swiftly and inevitably ... And in Yalta, they solved the problems of the post-war division of the world, not knowing who would enter Berlin first, however. Stalin in Yalta was bargaining, realizing that the world war did not lead to the results that were expected in the USSR. The greatness of the Victory over the Nazis (bloc of states) was not for Stalin himself: the Victory Parade at the end of June 1945 and that was all - no further celebration during the life of the leader! Remember the words of Molotov in his memoirs about the first days of the Hitlerite attack on our country: Stalin lamentedly repeated the same phrase "... Lenin left us the proletarian Soviet state, and we shamed it!" I think that something similar Stalin repeated after the "so victoriously completed" war. So, he "bargained" with the Allies, realizing what heavy losses the country and people suffered ... And the fact that the Americans went to the finish line in the nuclear race did not at all add to the old man, the host of the meeting, enthusiasm and chances of revenge in world hegemony.

            Nothing strange. The country enters the war and immediately discusses what it should receive in return.
            In the case of Hokkaido, it turns out that the Allies subsequently revised their position.

        And the Polish question ....

        In general, the place was chosen surprising and symbolic: after all, most recently it was liberated from occupation ....

      He did not make any concessions. In his hands were all the trump cards, confirmed by the strength of the Soviet Army. The Allies understood this very well, so they didn’t push hard, accepting Stalin’s conditions for post-war Europe. They bargained for themselves a little that the USSR could not reach.

      Stalin did not indulge anything! He pressed and how completely he could! Already then in the USA there was a nuclear bomb.

        Not there, the first test explosion was during the Potsdam conference. But there was already information about the development of this weapon.

      Documents are being declassified as it is selectively, and some, on the contrary, have been classified up to 2040.

    key decisions were made on the principles of interaction between states in the postwar period, as well as on the creation of the UN.
    Today, these "key decisions" are being tried to be reviewed, and not without the help of guests of Yalta (United States, Great Britain). Let's see how officially the heads of these countries will react to the proposal of the GDP about a new meeting.

      Yes, they will not react in any way, now they are happy with everything. Till. When them it will be bad, they themselves will crawl with a proposal for a meeting. Here it will already be necessary to bend your line. In addition, in the West there are no longer politicians at the level of Roosevelt and Churchill. Look only at the clown Johnson, so everything is immediately clear. And the attitude of the West towards international treaties is not giving a damn, there is no trust in them, they only respect force.

          Putin is certainly not Stalin, but certainly not Yeltsin. In addition, they don’t like Putin in the West, they can’t eat. And this is a very good sign, it means everything is doing right. On the outside, at least.

            Trump lost to Putin and Jinping in popularity.
            The activities of US President Donald Trump does not find approval from most residents of Western Europe. So, according to a study conducted in 33 countries with the participation of almost 37 thousand people, 64% of those polled do not trust the foreign policy of the head of the White House. His course is supported by 29%. In particular, “anti-Trump” sentiments prevail in Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, France and Sweden. And in Mexico, 89% of the study participants are negatively related to the American leader.

            It is noted that Trump has more negative assessments than other world leaders. Thus, the foreign policy of the Chancellor of Germany, Angels Merkel, is supported by 46% of respondents (29% expressed no confidence in her political course).

            It is followed by French President Emmanuel Macron. He received 41% of positive reviews against 36% of respondents who do not trust the head of the Fifth Republic. Foreign policy of Russian President Vladimir Putin is shared by 33% of respondents, 57% of respondents do not support the course of the head of the Russian Federation. Of the course conducted by Chinese leader Xi Jinping, 28% of respondents are sure, while 43% of the study participant consider his policy on the world stage to be incorrect.

            As REGNUM reported, according to the FiveThirtyEight Public Opinion Research Center, the new, 2020, US President Donald Trump begins with a low approval rating - only 42,6% of Americans are satisfied with his work results, 52,5% are unsatisfied

              Trump lost to Putin and Jinping in popularity.

              It means, not a rating among the population of Europe, but the attitude of Western power elites. The voice of ordinary people, with developed Western democracy, is needed exclusively during the election period. And then, from citizens, people, people, they turn into a mass, called the electorate. In the inter-election period, the opinion of ordinary citizens does not bother anyone. So, different polls monitor moods just in case.

    Everything was fine, Yalta, where the Great Stalin ruled the victory, where our Victory was consolidated, but here again a woman appeared with a reduced responsibility - PACE. As soon as they paid her money, she again started a song about Crimea
    The PACE document contains provisions requiring Russia to comply with the Minsk agreements, as well as return the “annexed” Crimea to Ukraine. Earlier, the PACE Committee on Political Affairs and Democracy rejected the amendments of the Russian delegation to the document that determines the working procedure of the tripartite mechanism for responding to violations of the Council of Europe’s charter.
    To whom, but lousy about the bath.

    The statement is loud, but frankly, secondary issues were declassified, which were generally unclear why they had been kept secret for so many years.
    Transcripts of the Yalta Conference were published a long time ago both in the USSR and in the West.

    Defense Ministry declassified documents on the Yalta Conference of 1945
    The title of the article is not quite correctly worded, as the section deals with measures to ensure the preparation of the conference: "Today's selection of declassified documents from the funds of the Central Archive of the Ministry of Defense talks about intense, scrupulous preparation for ensuring the comprehensive security of this landmark historical event"

    Interestingly, until 2040 they decided to leave the heading of the preparation for the Yalta conference of the group of Sergo Lavrentievich Beria ... And then, all of a sudden, in the Russian Federation the electorate will begin to think about the question: "The sons of Stalin's People’s Commissars, deputies and Stalin himself earned their living and how death accepted, but the sons of the current ministers and deputies, how do they earn a living? "...
