Extract

It would be idle speculation to try to guess what course Soviet policy might have adopted and pursued after World War II if no United Nations had been created. The purpose of this article will therefore be to try to answer some detailed questions centering around the main one of whether the creation of the United Nations, the USSR's participation in it and some of the actions of the organization influenced Soviet policy and, if so, where, how and to what extent.

4 The above-mentioned Stalin interview still represents the official Soviet standpoint. It was quoted last by Nicolai A. Bulganin on November 6, 1950 in a highly authoritative speech on the 33rd anniversary of the October revolution. Bulganin stressed that “The Soviet government supports all measures designed to strengthen the United Nations” and that it is “the American bloc which systematically rejects Soviet proposals directed towards that goal.”

5 Stalin's emphasis in his interview (repeated last by Bulganin) on the fact that the United Nations “is based on the principle of equality of states and not on that of domination of some over others” has obviously the same political eloquence.
