ABSTRACT

The Russian-language weekly "British Ally", circulating in the USSR since 1942, informed Soviet readers about British military operations, British culture and science, and the joint struggle of the countries of the anti-Hitler coalition against Nazi Germany and its allies.
In February and March 1945, it covered in detail the course and results of the three-party meetings in Crimea between Joseph Stalin, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill. The editorial articles stressed that the conference began with military negotiations: the parties reviewed the situation on all the European fronts and exchanged the full information about it. Great Britain voiced concerns about the future of Poland and the conflict between the Soviet Union and the Polish government-in-exile.
The British position on the decisions of the Yalta Conference was revealed to the reader through detailed excerpts from the speeches of Winston Churchill and Anthony Eden, the Foreign Minister, in the British Parliament. In several issues of the British Ally, there appeared a column presenting the reaction of British newspapers to the events in Yalta.
Those materials were supposed to show the reader that the main task of the Allies was not only the final defeat of Nazi Germany but also the establishment of long-term peace in Europe.
