August 14, 2020 | Education|
The Cold War began immediately after World War II, when the rivalry between the USSR and the United States reached its climax. In 1946-1947. The USSR wanted from Turkey to receive territory for placing its military base on it, this posed a direct threat to America. Then Truman, the President of the United States, declared his readiness to carry out a policy of “containment” in relation to the USSR throughout the world. It was from that moment (1947) that it is generally accepted that the Cold War began. The Cold War ended in December 1987, when, at a meeting in Washington, Gorbachev and Reagan signed an agreement under which US and Soviet medium-range missiles were withdrawn from Europe.
