ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the impact of the removal of Russian communist leader Lavrenti Beria on Soviet Union's foreign policy. This attitude has now changed. It is believed that Beria's removal has a direct bearing on the evolution of the Soviet policy of appeasement of the West, particularly on Moscow's counter-moves to all-out U.S. support of Germany's return to dominant power on the European continent, if not in a much larger area. The lesson which some Western European observers read now into the down-fall of Beria is that the Soviet Union, realistic in facing the facts, may be preparing one of the most sensational strategic retreats in its history.
