Summary/Abstract: This paper investigates Romania’s initiatives for cooperation at the Black Sea seen from the perspective of this country’s position in the Soviet sphere of influence. For fifteen years any Romanian initiatives in this respect came as responses to Soviet suggestions or demands. It was only when Romania detached to some extent from Soviet embracement that she could formulate more independent initiatives, but then it lacked any support from Moscow’s faithful vassals. In the meantime, the Soviet presence at the Black Sea took very concrete shapes, the Soviet Black Sea Fleet acquiring the right to harbor in Romanian waters.
