Russia, Turkey, and the West: Diplomatic Correspondence from 1944-1951

I dont know much about Ukraine. However, given the stakes involved, I thought it useful to post some archival documents detailing Turkey’s concerns about Russian expansion in the waning days of World War II and the start of the Cold War. There are some broad parallels to the current situation in the Crimea. Perceptions matter in international relations. The stakes are very high for the west.

Happy reading.

Just click on the link to access a small selection of the documents.
