On October 23rd, 1962, as a result of information received from intelligence sources concerning the installation of Soviet surface-to-surface medium-range ballistic missiles in Cuba, the United States government proclaimed a quarantine on the island for the purpose of preventing any further importation of these missiles into Cuba and for procuring the removal of those already there. The quarantine was put into effect by U.S. Naval Forces on October 24th, was denounced in the Security Council by Cuba as "an act of war," and by the Soviet Union as a "threat of war" in violation of the United Nations Charter. The result of quarantine was qualified success for the United States. The Soviet Union elected not to challenge the quarantine.
