Abstract:

The present article analyzes the relations between Bulgaria and the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (KSCS) through the prism of the accession of Bulgaria to the League of Nations (LN) in 1920. By tracing the specific steps of Bulgarian and international diplomacy, the article throws light on the real nature of the Balkan model of interrelations between victor and defeated and highlights the circumstances in which the post-war foreign policy of Bulgaria was formed. The arguments adduced in the article justify the claim that KSCS behaved like a “little France” in the Balkans and, unlike Romania and Poland, was unwilling to listen to and follow Paris in everything.
