What goal did the allies set for eastern Europe at the yalta conference?
free elections in eastern europe.
Military might. With the power gap left by the defeated Germans, the USSR was able to usurp their position as controller of Eastern Europe by sheer right of conquest. At the Yalta conference and other meetings during WW2, the Allies had given Stalin assurances in terms of territorial influence as well.
The Yalta Conference was a conference between the Allies near the end of WWII that debated on the outcome of postwar Europe. The main topic was how to deal with Nazi Germany. The US proposed a plan to split Germany into six separate countries and to have an Allied occupation of Austria. This, obviously, did not come true though. The US also wanted Germany to became a democratic nation.
It was a meeting in Yalta in Eastern Europe in February 1945. The Big 3(Roosevelt, Churchill, Stalin) meet to discuss what they would do with Germany and Europe after the war was over. It was decided that Stalin and the Soviet Union would over take Berlin, and have control of Eastern Europe. This lead to tensions because Stalin forced communism onto the Eastern European countries, and as we know the US was anti-communist.
