Summary/Abstract: The intervention into Czechoslovakia in August 1968 awoke new expectations among the Yugoslav informbiroist emigres settled in the states of the Soviet Block. These antititoist communists hoped that also the question of Yugoslavia could be opened now again. The chief persons of emigration group in Czechoslovakia assessed the development during the Prague’s spring very critically and negatively. Therefore they appreciated the military occupation by the five armies of the Warsaw agreement The sudden freezing in Soviet-Yugoslav relations, weakened international position of Yugoslavia and its apparent inner crisis as well were factors which fed presumptions that the similar solution as in Czechoslovak case was possible. It was the reason for rebirth of ideas to launch a political activity in emigration for helping and supporting the pro-Soviet elements in the homeland. This paper maps mainly on grounds of the documents in the Czechoslovak former security archives the beginning of the activity and attitudes exercised by the front Yugoslav emigrants in Czechoslovakia.
