Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Conditions of the agreement between Kennedy and Khrushchev. Publicly Secretly The Soviets would dismantle and take out any missiles that they already had in Cube, and not bring any back in. The U.S. agreed to never invade Cuba without direct and logical reasoning. Kennedy agreed with Khrushchev to dismantle the missiles that the U.S. had set up in Turkey and in Italy. The fact that the U.S. even had those missiles was kept secret from the public. Cuban Missile Crisis The Cuban Missile Crisis was a 13 day long dilemma that began on October 14th, 1962, and lasted until October 28th, 1962. The Soviets wanted to insert nuclear missiles into Cuba because of the fact that the U.S. had nuclear missiles in range of Russia, set up in Turkey and Italy. Also, Khrushchev wanted the nuclear missiles in Cuba so that once the U.S. discovered their presence, he would negotiate to get them removed. Khrushchev planned the negotiate with Kennedy that he would remove the missiles from Cuba if the U.S. gave up control of Berlin, so it would be under total Soviet power. The U.S. formed a naval blockade that began on October 21st, and lasted until about 6:45 pm on November 20th. The purpose of the blockade was to prevent any more Soviet nuclear missiles from getting into Cuba to be used against the U.S. This is a map of Cuba, that displays the main Soviet missile locations in Cuba during the Crisis, and the naval blockade formed by the U.S. This graph shows theNuclear weapons stockpile for both the Soviets and Americans for the past 60 years. The crisis ended after several days of negotiation between the President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, and the Russian Premier, Nikita Khrushchev. The black lines signify the Cuban Missile Crisis. The U.S. and the Soviets realized that their needed to be a more direct, quicker way of communication between the two countries, so they developed a direct, quick hotline between Moscow, and Washington D.C. "The closest the world had ever been to total nuclear war." During the Crisis, there was only 1 death. A U.S. pilot was shot down and killed by a Soviet missile crew, but despite this, President Kennedy kept calm, and procededed with the negotioations. double click to changethis text!
