As an agency of international communism, the Cominform was founded under Soviet auspices at Wilcza Góra, Poland in Sept. 1947, and disbanded by Soviet initiative on April 17, 1956. It was established with nine members, the most vehement supporters being the Yugoslav communists under Tito. Because of this Belgrade was selected as the first site of the Cominform. In June 1948 Tito's party was expelled from the Cominform and the seat of the bureau was moved to Bucharest. The main activities of the Cominform were in publishing propaganda and encouraging international communist solidarity, but like the Comintern before it, the Cominform served more as a tool of Soviet propaganda than as an agent of international revolution)
