Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, USA From February 4 to 11, Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin gathered with their own agendas for the conference in the city of Kanta, Russian Crimea. For Stalin, the main objectives were economic aid to Russia after the war and the recognition by the United States and Britain of a Soviet sphere of influence in Eastern Europe. Churchill had in mind the protection of the British Empire, but he also wanted to clarify the status of post-war Germany. Roosevelt`s goals were a consensus on the creation of the United Nations and the Soviet agreement to go to war against Japan as soon as Hitler was defeated. None of them left Kanta completely satisfied. There has been no definitive definition of financial assistance to Russia.
Many questions concerning Germany have been postponed for further discussion. As for the United Nations, Stalin wanted the sixteen Soviet republics to be represented in the General Assembly, but opted for three (the Soviet Union as a whole, Belarus and Ukraine). The Soviets, however, agreed to participate in the war against Japan, 90 days after the defeat of Hitler`s Germany.
