vessels in Yalta, Crimea, circa 1910

Part of Russia at the time, for about 60 years part of Ukraine and recently part of Russia again.

This place was the venue for the Yalta Conference of February 1945 in which President FDR and Winston Churchill agreed to carve up Germany and Austria into occupation zones and to let Stalin redraw the maps of Eastern Europe after WW2.
