The main palaeogeographic features of the Late Cretaceous Eastern European Platform and its southern framework are reconstructed mainly based on micropalaeontological data. An integrated foraminiferal–radiolarian zonation for the Upper Albian–Maastrichtian serves as a basis for palaeogeographic reconstructions and as a framework for the interpretation of palaeoclimate and sea-level trends. The study focuses on time slices of late Albian–Cenomanian, Turonian–Coniacian and Santonian–Campanian intervals. The late Albian was characterized by the gradual disappearance of a meridional seaway and the opening of connections into the Tethys Ocean and parts of the Peri-Tethys seas during the Cenomanian. As a result, mainly carbonate sedimentation...
