The Dissolution of the Comintern
The Echoes in Slovenia and the International Framework
The dissolution of the Comintern on 15 May was Stalin's tactical move which brought no significant change to the well established relations between the Comintern leadership, i.e. Moscow, and its members - the communist parties. The response in Slovenia, immediately after the official news of the dissolution was varied. The communists accepted the official explanation of the leadership of the Communist Party of Slovenia justifying the dissolution of the international association of communist parties, and endeavored to present the Party to the public as national and patriotic. Some prominent members of the Slovene Liberation Front considered the dissolution as a significant move which recognized the national identity of individual countries and allowed the communist parties to become truly national. On the anti-communist side the assessment prevailed that nothing much would change with the demise of the Comintern, which Stalin had been compelled to dissolve because of anti-communist feelings among the western Allies, given that national communist parties continued operating and pursuing their programmes.
