In late 1945 there began, in Moscow a meeting of foreign ministers of the United States, England, and the Soviet Union. The Moscow Agreement was the result; under its terms the rival U.S. and Soviet military commands in Korea would set up a Joint Commission to make recommendations of a single free government in Korea. This Commission the Soviets began to sabotage from its inception. But far more important was the Moscow Agreeement's decision that a four-power trusteeship of up to five years would be needed before Korea attained inpdependence. 1945 was a common year starting on Monday (link will take you to calendar). ...

Moscow miscalculated that the absence of border agreements could impede those countries' admission to NATO and the European Union.
Moscow's move is triply significant: First, as a bow to the inevitable in terms of Russia-EU relations; second, as an attempt at wedge-drawing between Baltic states, trying to isolate Latvia; and, third, as an indication that Russia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has become entangled in its own maneuvers, unable to control the dynamic of events.
Under the agreement, Russia obtains confirmation of its possession of two areas that were taken from Estonia and attached to the Russian SFSR during the occupation era: the town and environs of Iaanilinn (Ivangorod, opposite Narva) and the district of Petseri (Pechery, now in Pskov region).
A second agreement, involving Moldova's Transdniester conflict, is both a symbol and a reflection of Moscow's enduring efforts to dominate the post-Soviet space.
Moscow hopes its decision to recognize the republic's independence (for that is how the treaty is being seen not only in Chechnya but even among some Russian politicians, including Moscow mayor Yuri Luzhkov) will boost Maskhadov's popularity and reduce the danger of his replacement.
Moscow uses Transdniester as a distant Russian military outpost on the threshold of the Balkans and in the rear of Ukraine.
