The Yalta conference took place from 4 to 11 February 1945, during the Second World War, at a Russian resort in Crimea. In Yalta, U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Soviet Prime Minister Joseph Stalin made important decisions on the future progress of the war and the post-war world. So what was their final agreement? A press release issued in Yalta on 12 February is kept in a press release in the archives of the Truman Library. It contains a statement from Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin on the outcome of the conference. The leaders announced that they had achieved “closer coordination than ever before of the military efforts of the three allies” and pledged to launch “even more powerful new blows” against the enemy. “Nazi Germany is doomed to fail,” the statement continued, and the Germans should surrender to avoid further suffering. After Yalta in the USSR, when Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Molotov worried that the formulation of the Yalta agreement could hinder Stalin`s plans, Stalin replied: “Never anything. We will do it later in our own way.  While the Soviet Union had already annexed several occupied countries such as (or in Soviet republics), , other countries it occupies in Central and Eastern Europe have been transformed into Soviet satellite states, such as the People`s Republic of Poland, the People`s Republic of Hungary the Czechoslovakian Socialist Republic the People`s Republic of Romania, the People`s Republic of Bulgaria , the People`s Republic of Bulgaria, the People`s Republic of Albania, and later East Germany of the Soviet zone of occupation. Finally, the United States and the United Kingdom made concessions on the recognition of the then Communist-dominated regions and sacrificed the substance of the Yalta Declaration while remaining in form.
 But the press release and explanation are also remarkable for what they do not respond to. There is no question, for example, of plans allied to the Pacific Theater. At Yalta, Roosevelt and Churchill agreed to annex Stalin to a japanese-held part of Manchuria to bring his troops to war with Japan. In addition, Western allies have embraced Soviet domination of Eastern Europe, undermining their stated goal of establishing free governments in Poland and elsewhere in the region. Tragically, the Allies` zeal to end the Second World War set the stage for a much longer cold war.
