”Ovidius” University of Constanta, e-mail:




The Soviet – British treaty is very well known. It represents the end of a road that began in December 1941, through Anthony Eden’s visit to Moscow. On that occasion Stalin forwarded a project that, actually, divided the mutual domination in Europe and modified the frontiers. But the final treaty, signed on May 26, 1942, doesn’t mention anything about the territorial changes discussed in Moscow. On Berlin’s instructions, some Swedish journals published articles regarding the so-called „territorial clauses” which, in fact, don’t exist in the actual treaty. We consider these standpoints as an episode in a „war of nerves”, which caused significant damages to the Allied cause, at public opinion level.   



Tratatul sovieto-britanic din 1942 este binecunoscut. Acesta este finalul unui traseu ce a început în decembrie 1941 prin vizita lui Anthony Eden la Moscova. Cu acea ocazie, Stalin a înaintat un proiect care, în fapt, împartea dominatia comuna în Europa si modifica frontierele. Dar tratatul final, semnat la 26 mai 1942, nu mentiona nimic cu privire la schimbarile teritoriale discutate la Moscova. La ordinele Berlinului, câtiva ziaristi suedezi au publicat câteva articole privind asa-numitele „clauze teritoriale” care, în realitate, nu existau în tratat. Consideram publicarea acestor articole ca un episod în „razboiul de nervi” care producea daune însemnate cauzei Aliatilor la nivelul opiniei publice.
