The Consequences of the Revolt in Hungary


The Hungarian uprising took place in October to November 1956. The
Hungarians wanted free elections, an end to the collectivisation of
farms, the withdrawal of Soviet troops and the AVO (Hungarian Secret
Police) to stop its persecution of anti-communists. Also the last
demand that they made, which Khrushchev could not agree to, was the
removal of Hungary from the Warsaw pact. When these demands were
refused Khrushchev also sent in the Red Army to flush out the
resistance fighters, who had already driven out a previous division.

The consequences for the USSR

The USSR faced many consequences as a result of the harsh treatment
that they had dealt the Hungarians during the rebellion.

Khrushchev had reinforced his position because before the revolt many
people in Russia thought that Khrushchev was a bit weak hearted and
was afraid to order the deaths of thousands of people, this was mainly
because of the way he had treated Poland, however now that Khrushchev
had shown that he was not afraid he earned a new respect from many
older communists.

This also showed the West that despite Stalin’s death the USSR was
still determined to keep Eastern Europe under Soviet control.

The consequences for Hungary

Hungary suffered terribly as a result of the rebellion.

Up to 30,000 of their countrymen had died, and at least 200,000 had
fled to the surrounding countries.

Nagy (the leader of the Hungarians during the revolt) had retreated to
the Yugoslavian embassy and was tricked into coming out of it, he was
then arrested be the AVO deported to Russia where he was put on
‘trial’ and then hung.

The man who was instituted as the new leader was called Kadar was
totally under the influence of Russia and continued to govern till
1988. However during his time spent in power he grew soft and started
to allow the Hungarians certain freedoms.

The consequences for the West

The Western powers as a result of the force shown by the Soviets was

proof to them that at all costs they had to keep communism from
spreading any further into Europe. This proved to NATO that the USSR
was a real live threat.

Also when the Soviets invaded after they had pulled their troops out
(because of one of the demands made by the Hungarians) the UN had
tried to vote to make the USSR withdraw however the USSR had vetoed
the decision. This showed the western powers that the only way to
make the USSR do something was to invade them.

Also the USSR accused the west of supporting Nagy and his rebels and
wanting them to win to discredit the USSR.

The consequences for the rest of Eastern Europe

Eastern Europe now realised that they could do nothing against the
might of the Soviet empire, and whatever the Soviets said they had to
do was law.

Also they now knew that Russia would never allow them to become
independent states even if they stayed communist.

Also they all saw they would have to follow the same policies as
Moscow because anything else may be seen as an uprising.

As a conclusion I would say that as a result of Hungary the USSR
managed to show the rest of the world that they were not afraid to
commit troops to any cause and that they were a very dangerous threat
to the rest of the world.

Also that the Soviet empire managed to greatly improve its stature
among all other countries because of the fact that they could do
something like that without the western powers intervening.

Also this showed the USSR that the West was still not prepared for a
war against them yet as they still had more important matters on their
hand such as Egypt and the Suez Canal.
