I have to write a paper on why the soviets are to blame for the cold war (just the soviets-not anythings about why the us was to blame) and I keep reading about the yalta conference and that stalin refused to allow free elections in Eastern Europe.but i don't understand how it relates to the cold war. did it escalate tension or something?
