revised What was the reason for Soviet troops to withdraw from Yugoslavia in World War II?
I'm not interested in "publicly stated" reasons, but in all historically determinable ones

comment What was the reason for Soviet troops to withdraw from Yugoslavia in World War II?
@SamuelRussell Scratching my head now over downvote. The sentence mentioning "magic" in no way belongs to my actual question. I've removed it. It's just a minor loss of historical context.

comment What were the origins of democracy?
@ReliableSource The decision making in hunter-gatherer bands (the "before Neolithic" humans) is backed up by "Guns, Germs, and Steel".

comment What was the societal wealth demographics when the major pyramids were built?
@NewAlexandria Every your word assures me we are not on the same page at all. "Wealth" and "currency" are terms that don't help with anything here, but very much contribute to misunderstanding and useless debates.

@Jørgen Thanks for pointing out this little gem. Curiously, Soviets stayed on Norwegian soil until they learnt about Hiroshima and Nagasaki. From Yugoslavia, it seems they withdrew much more quickly.

comment What was the reason for Soviet troops to withdraw from Yugoslavia in World War II?
Excuse me, but this section in Wikipedia article, not to say it's bullshit, but is not sufficiently sourced. I'm interested exactly in the gory details of what you've summarized with "[...] so were redeployed [...]". For example take Poland: the troops were needed elsewhere, and they were redeployed, but some rear remained, and this was very much sufficient to influence country's politics.

comment No speed limit on German highways - why?
@Jake J True. And think about aircraft. Are there no emission problems there? So maybe a common speed limit for both? Like 400 km/h, I wonder what would passengers and industrial lobby say to that?

Hence I've made a comment, not an answer.

For Yugoslavia and Albania, as much as it is questionable if they were a part of Eastern Bloc (after, respectively, 1948 and 1961), they surely weren't under USSR command like the rest. Nice overview of Soviet political progress: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Bloc
