After Stalin's death, Yugoslavia under Josip Broz Tito emerged as a neutral state in Southeastern Europe, seeking to balance between East and West. Even though Tito was a staunch Communist until the day he died, Yugoslavia successfully kept its distance from the Soviet Union and became a founding leader of the Non-Aligned Movement.
