The Yugoslavian people had borne the brunt of the ward of liberation the assistance by the Soviet Union to the patriotic struggle had also been instrumental in their ultimate victory. Stalin’s objectives in supporting Marshall Tito, a fellow Communist, were those of an ideological and strategic nature. Since the extension of Moscow’s influence to Yugoslavia would give Russia a position of vantage against capitalist west in an oncoming struggle for the mastery over Europe. But Marshal Tito could not accede to the status of a satellite as he rejected the subordination of the Yugoslav Communist movement to the C.P.S.U.(Communist Party of the Soviet Union). He objected to the fiat of the Cominform, thus asserting an autonomous status in the Communist World.
