Romania’s attitude towards the “Prague Spring”

During the evening of 20/21 August 1968, troops from five Warsaw Treaty member states entered Czechoslovakia in order to end the ‘Prague Spring.’ Faced with these circumstances, the Bucharest regime publicly condemned in harsh terms the intervention and stated its solidarity with the Czech and Slovak people. Faced with the possibility of a Soviet intervention in Romania, the Bucharest regime mobilised the army, created armed patriotic guards and sought international support.
