New data on the possible relationship of intermediate earthquakes of the Vrancea zone with the velocity structure of the mantle based on a three-dimensional P-velocity model of the mantle up to a depth of 850 km, have been given in the paper not only for the immediate environment (Vrancea area have been shown as the contact boundary region), but also for the wider region (the relationship of the Vrancea zone with the velocity structure of the mantle of the Afro-Arabian, East European platforms, the Adriatic microplate and the Scythian-Turan plate has been shown).
