ABSTRACT
The article focuses on issues related to the recognition of Soviet hegemony by the U.S. government during the 1945 Yalta Conference in the U.S. The Soviet government violated the Yalta Agreement by sending its armies all over Eastern Europe and the Balkans and with the exception of Yugoslavia and Austria. Joseph Stalin, general secretary of the Communist party of the Soviet Union was quite aware of U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt's agenda and kept pushing for legitimation of Soviet hegemony in Eastern Europe.
