Sample text

Khrushchev wanted to prevent the Central Committee from rehabilitating Gomulka but achieved nothing. He returned to Moscow, leaving his marshals in Warsaw. It became clear from Gomulka's speech at the plenary session that he was heading toward a communist orientation similar to that taken by Yugoslav President Tito. After dedicating much of his speech to the poor economic situation in Poland and to a criticism of the ruling government, he tackled international political themes. He emphasized that the Twentieth Congress of the Soviet Communist Party represented a historical break away from the path of violence, corruption, and subservience.

This sphere of influence/bloc included the countries the Soviet army had passed through. Geographically, it was a belt of neighbouring states in central and southeast Europe. The general strategic line of American foreign policy after World War Two emerged from a variety of factors. One of the fundamental features was its own territorial, political, and economic interests. As in the case of Soviet foreign policy, the aim was to fill the power vacuum in the world; this aim was officially justified by America's emergence as the provider of 'national security'.

But by October 23, 1956, a violent backlash had already begun in Hungary and columns of Soviet soldiers were heading toward Poland. In order to avoid simultaneous conflicts in two such important countries in the Soviet bloc, Khrushchev made a call to Gomulka, confirmed the new Polish policies, and called off the troops in their advance to Warsaw. Thus Poland was saved from 'friendly intervention' and did not suffer the same fate that Hungary did the same year and Czechoslovakia would in 1968. The Polish October spring survived for a while.
