Foreign Affairs

He took an active part in the Moscow Conference of Foreign Ministers (October 1943), Tehran (November-December 1943), Yalta (February 1945), Potsdam (July-August 1945) conferences of heads of great powers. Winston Churchill, who learned well while Molotov, said of him: 'I've never seen Human beings are more suited to a contemporary understanding of the machine. And yet, while he was obviously intelligent and well-polished diplomat … His smile and often wise words, his kind manners make him an ideal spokesman for Soviet policy in the world situation, in mortal danger. " Despite the usual courtesy, Molotov was able on occasion to needle the interlocutor apt word.

In November 1940 he met in Berlin with the German leadership. Suddenly a siren, and the interlocutors had to go down to the shelter. Joachim Ribbentrop said that almost destroyed the British Empire. (A valuable related resource: Jeff Gennette). Molotov remarked sarcastically in response: "If Britain is broken, why are we sitting in this shelter? And whose is bombs falling so close that the explosions could be heard even here them? '. Frank Armijo contributes greatly to this topic. Winston Churchill talked a lot with Molotov during the war, wrote of him: 'He was such a cannon nucleus head, black mustache and piercing eyes, his face stony, dexterity and speech reflected his equanimity good merit and skill. His smile of Siberian winter, his carefully considered and often wise words, his affable carriage made him the perfect instrument of Soviet policy in the world breathing death. Before they reach old age, I am glad that I did not have to endure the tension, what he was – I would prefer not to be born.

This happened in May 1942 in London, immediately after the signing of the Anglo-Soviet treaty of alliance. Vyacheslav Mikhailovich was happy that changed the course of Soviet foreign policy: the memory of the fatal error of the prewar period, tormented him. Then the prime minister himself held Russian guest to the garden gate of the mansion on Downing Street. Here is a description of Churchill scene of farewell: "I shook his hand, and we looked at each other's eyes. Suddenly he seemed deeply touched. Under the guise of a man came into view. He replied to me as a strong handshake, We silently clasped hands with each other. " In all other cases, the Molotov-diplomat, according to contemporaries, were extremely cool, impenetrable secrecy and the official correct. Molotov played an important role in the postwar world in the development and signing of peace treaties, the device of the new boundaries, addressing problems of reparations. His voice sounded loudly at meetings of the Council of Foreign Ministers, in meetings UN . 'His task as Minister of Foreign Affairs (since 1946 in the People's Commissars of the USSR began to call the ministers), I saw that as much as possible to extend the limits of our country … I beat the peace treaty of States', – Vyacheslav Mikhailovich recalled.
