YALTA, February 5. /TASS/. Crimea’s resort city of Yalta on Thursday hosts an international conference focusing on the ways to counter the cold war ideology and prevent the rebirth of Nazism in Europe.
The event, called Yalta-45: Past, Present, Future, is dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the Yalta Conference, a meeting of the leaders of the anti-Hitler coalition - Joseph Stalin, US President Franklin Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
The forum, which is held in Livadiya Palace outside Yalta, Crimea, is due to be attended by political scientists, politicians and historians who focus on the period of World War II in their researches.
The current system of international relations established after the Yalta Conference has ensured peace in Europe over the last 50 years and existed until the end of the 20th century.
The participants of the meeting defined the plans regarding the conditions for Germany’s surrender and the post-war settlement. The sides also agreed to create a global organization, which was later called the United Nations (UN).
The UN’s activity is based on a key principle that the decisions are to be approved unanimously by the permanent member states of the UN Security Council, which also have the right to block a decision, which they consider as unacceptable.
