Josip Broz Tito was the Prime Minister of Yugoslavia between the years of 1953 and 1963. For those of you that do not know, Yugoslavia split from the Soviet Union during this time period which created an extreme amount of tension between Tito and Josef Stalin. As a result of this tension, Stalin hired multiple assassinations to try and kill Josip Broz Tito, all of which were unsuccessful. In fact, two of Stalin’s assassins had actually been caught by Tito!
Tito had become so frustrated with Stalin’s attempts to sneak behind his back and kill him that he issued a statement that would cause Stalin to shake in his boots! Tito said “Stop sending people to kill me. We’ve already captured five of them, one of them with a bomb and another with a rifle… If you don’t stop sending killers, I’ll send one to Moscow, and I won’t have to send a second.” Want to read more of Tito’s quotes?
