A supporter of NEW ECONOMIC POLICY, he lost Stalin's backing in 1929 when the latter introduced collectivisation: labelled as a 'right deviationist', Bukharin lost his place on the Politburo. He briefly regained influence in the mid-1930s,editing 20 Izvestia from 1934 and helping to draft the USSR's 1936 constitution. However, he was targetedby Stalin's 1937 purge of the old Bolsheviks,and was executedafter a show trial in 1938 (see YEZHOVSHCHINA). In 1988, the USSR's SupremeCourt rehabilitated him.

In response,the USSR refused to allow any of the countries in which it had a controlling interest through military presenceand communist control from receiving Marshall Aid, and establishedthe COMINFORM to help coordinate communistparty activities. The continued division of Europewas hastenedin 1948 by a number of events, including a Soviet-backed communist coup in Czechoslovakia (see BENES, GOTTWALD, MASARYK) in February, the signing of the BRUSSELS TREATY for mutual defence in March, and the BERLIN BLOCKADE and subsequentairlift.

Despite STALIN'S death in March 1953, which somecommentatorsthought would cause a relaxation in the Cold War, tensions continued to build in many areas. The communist suppressionof demonstrations in the GDR in June 1953 and in Poland in June 1956, the accessionof FRG to NATO in May, and the formation of the WARSAW PACT as the USSR's own military alliance systemin May 1955 all showeda further formalisationof Cold War fault lines: the latter example, coming just after the AUSTRIAN STATE TREATY had been seen as a positive sign by the USA, was significant as it maintained a Soviet military presencethroughout eastern Europe (see also IMPERIALISM).
