Franklin Roosevelt tried to break the tension by jokingly offering up a "compromise" figure of 49,000; Churchill left the room. Stalin and Molotov pursued Churchill and persuaded him to return, but did not convince him Stalin's comment was not seriously intended. Churchill's vision (and the rule of law) mostly prevailed, though, following the end of hostilities in Europe in 1945.
