Summary/Abstract: Publishing IB Resolution in the newspaper Rude pravo on 29 June 1948 provoked numerous reactions of Czechoslovak state government, political parties, businessmen, press, citizens and influental individuals. Declaring themselves in favour of the Resolution on the Cominform meeting in Bucharest, Communist Party of Bohemia and Communist Party of Slovakia started a campaign of explaining the attitudes from the Resolution. Accusations stated in the Resolutions denounced Yugoslav government. Special campaign was led against Josip Broz, who was proclaimed traitor of socialism and collaborator with western democracies. Being servile to Moscow, Czechoslovak Communists made efforts to discredit CPY in order to take the best position in international block of Communist parties possible. At the time of publishing IB Resolution, there were around 4000 economic émigrés of Yugoslav citizenship, almost 3000 Yugoslav trade school students and several hundred Yugoslav faculty students in Czechoslovakia. The biggest number of them declared for the attitudes of their state government and returned to Yugoslavia in August 1948, which ment the final break of their schooling in Czechoslovakia. Several dozen students who declared for the Resolution remained in Czechoslovakia and received scolarship from Czechoslovak government as well as political émigré status.
