Summary/Abstract: The Black Sea’ Straits have been for a long time one of the most important strategic places at the confluence between Asia Minor and Europe. This paper deals with Soviet demands to dominate the Straits in the aftermath of the Second World War and with the Turkish and Western Allies’ response to this project. The USSR embarked not only upon pretending the revision of the Montreux Convention but, even more threatening, advanced territorial pretensions against Turkey. This perhaps contributed significantly to the outbreak of the Cold War.
