Stojadinović, Milan

▪ premier of Yugoslavia
Stojadinović also spelled  Stoyadinovitch  
born July 23, 1888, Čačak, Serbia
died Oct. 24, 1961, Buenos Aires

      Serbian politician, Yugoslav minister of finance from 1922 to 1926, and premier and foreign minister of Yugoslavia from 1935 to 1939.

      After graduation from the University of Belgrade in 1910, he studied in Germany, England, and France and then served in the Serbian ministry of finance during World War I. Resigning in 1919, he became professor of economics at the University of Belgrade and then (1922) minister of finance.

      On June 23, 1935, he became premier and, in foreign affairs, abandoned Yugoslavia's principal allies, Czechoslovakia and France, in favour of Nazi Germany. In 1937, with German support, he negotiated treaties with Italy and Bulgaria, both traditional enemies of his country. As head of the Yugoslav Radical Union, a party of Serbs, Bosnian Muslims, and Slovenes, he was mistrusted by Croat leaders.

      The regent prince Paul, seeking national unity as World War II approached, accepted Stojadinović's early resignation in 1939. Fear that he was trying to set himself up as the head of a puppet regime with Axis backing led to his arrest in 1940. He was smuggled out of Yugoslavia in 1941 and moved to Argentina in 1949, where he became editor and publisher of an economics magazine. His memoirs, Ni rat ni pakt (“Neither War nor Pact”), were published in 1963.
