Bush singled out the 1945 Yalta agreement signed by Roosevelt in a speech during the second day of a five-day trip focused on Monday's celebration in Moscow of the 60th anniversary of Nazi Germany's defeat.
The Yalta agreement, signed during a meeting in Crimea, in the Soviet Union, carved up post-World War II Europe and left some countries behind the Iron Curtain.
Bush said the Yalta agreement followed in the "unjust tradition" of other war pacts that carved up the continent and left millions in oppression.

 What really happened at Yalta. By David Greenberg - Slate Magazine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Many of the agreements the Big Three reached at Yalta were relatively uncontroversial: The Allies decided to demand unconditional surrender from Germany, to carve up the country into four zones for its postwar occupation, and to proceed with plans to set up the United Nations.
He's right in his general point: all three pacts (Munich, Molotov-Ribbentrop, and Yalta) were negotiated to serve the interests of the powerful nations that brokered them, and all three disposed of the fate of weaker nations without awarding them a seat at the bargaining table.
Munich and Yalta, on the other hand, were part of a very different unjust tradition: the tendency of democratic nations to "appease" warmongers and tyrants, even at the expense of their honor and ideals.

The Yalta conference in February 1945 produced, according to President Bush, "one of the greatest wrongs of history."

The Declaration stands as the refutation of the myth, given new currency by the president of the United States, that Yalta caused or ratified the division of Europe.
