Summary/Abstract: The decision taken at the Moscow Conference by the foreign ministers of Soviet Union, United States and Great Britain (December 16-26, 1945) regarding the reorganizing of Petru Groza’s government and the organizing of free elections led to the ending of the constitutional crisis in Romania due to the fact that the United States and Great Britain did not recognize the Romanian government.The official results led to the victory of the Democratic Popular Bloc with 79,86%. The fake November 1946 elections, which gave legitimacy to Petru Groza’s government, was a new step in consolidating the Romanian Communist regime and marked the entrance of Romania in the Soviet sphere of influence.
