The Percentages Agreement 1944

On June 22, 1944, the Red Army launched Operation Bagration and, in the next battle, within the next 12 days, it destroyed the German military group Mitte, annihilating 21 divisions for a total of about 300,000 men. [28] The destruction of the Mitte Army Group created a huge gaping hole in the German lines on the Eastern Front and led to rapid Soviet advances. [29] On August 20, 1944, the Red Army launched a major offensive in the Balkans and invaded Romania, whose oil was the key to the German war effort. [30] On August 21, 1944, Churchill`s doctor, Lord Moran, wrote in his diary: “Winston never speaks of Hitler again these days. He is still waiting for the dangers of communism. He dreams that the Red Army will spread from one country to another like a cancer. It has become an obsession, and he seems to think of few other things” and continued that Churchill`s response to the Soviet offensive in Romania was to proclaim, “Good God, the Russians are spreading like a flood over Europe.” [31] Although the German 8th and 6th Armies resisted vigorously in Romania, the Romanian army, whose morals had been pondering for some time, collapsed in the face of the Soviet combined weapons offensive. [30] The Red Army encircled the German 6th Army, whose men serving in their 18 divisions surrendered or were killed, while the 8th Army, seriously wounded, withdrew to Hungary to keep passports in the Carpathians, in an attempt to prevent the Soviets from advancing towards Hungary. [30] The two foreign ministers, Anthony Eden and Vladimir Moulotov, negotiated the percentages on 10 and 11 October. The result of these discussions was that the percentages of Soviet influence in Bulgaria, and especially in Hungary, were changed to 80%, apart from that, no other country was mentioned. At the Cantta Conference (February 1945), Roosevelt proposed that the issues raised in the percentage agreement be decided by the new United Nations. Stalin was appalled because he wanted a Soviet sphere of influence in Eastern Europe. [82] It was not until 1958 that Soviet historians first recognized Churchill`s depiction in The Triumph and tragedy and only denied it afterwards.

[69] Soviet diplomatic historian Igor Zemskov wrote in the historical journal Mezhdunarodnaya zhizn that Churchill`s claim of a percentage agreement was a “dirty and rude” lie with no factual basis and stated that Stalin had not been made of such an offer that would have refused to be made. [69] The accusation that Stalin coldly and cynically abandoned the EAM, capable of retaking all of Greece in October 1944, proved damaging to his reputation in left-wing circles. Some historians, including Gabriel Kolko and Geoffrey Roberts, believe that the importance of the agreement is overstated. [70] Kolko writes that the percentage agreement was a secret informal agreement between British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Soviet leader Joseph Stalin at the Fourth Moscow Conference in October 1944. There was the percentage distribution of control of eastern European countries and divided them into spheres of influence. Franklin Roosevelt was consulted on a provisional basis and recognized the agreement. [2] The contents of the agreement were first published in 1953 by Churchill in the last volume of his memoirs. U.S. Ambassador Averell Harriman, who was scheduled to represent Roosevelt at these meetings, was excluded from the discussion.
