The Establishment of Communist Regimes in Eastern Europe, 1944-1949

By Norman Naimark; Leonid Gibianskii | Go to book overview

delegations to the Fifth Congress of the CPY which was to commence on July 21, 1948. Rάkosi had suggested that all the parties send delegations, and attempt to "influence the situation in Yugoslavia," -- that is, denounce the Yugoslav leadership. At the Secretariat's meeting, however, Suslov stated that "the Central Committee of the CPSU(b) considers it inexpedient to send delegations to the Fifth Congress of the CPY." 82 As a result, not a single Party sent representatives to the Congress.

Thus, Moscow was effectively able to isolate and neutralize the intransigent Yugoslav leadership, and its actions were endorsed by the Cominform. Although the Corninform-member countries might have been somewhat gratified to see the Yugoslav leadership dislodged from its pedestal, they were quailed by its fate, and effectively dissuaded from diverging from the course charted by the Soviets. With the consent of all but the Yugoslavs, the Kremlin had forged an organizational weapon -- the Cominform -- with which to control the Communist movement and the Soviet Bloc.
