Summary/Abstract: The paper examines the struggle between three agrarian parties – the Bulgarian Agrarian National Union “Nikola Petkov”, the Hungarian Smallholders Party and the Romanian National Peasant Party – and the local communist parties and Soviet representatives after the Second World War. It identifies the pattern and forms of communist campaign against the opposition agrarian parties and places them in the context of domestic and international developments. The paper discusses how the abolition of agrarian parties contributed to the Sovietization of Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania.
