Zveno (Bulgarian Army officers. It was associated with a newspaper of that name.

The Zveno members were not Prime Minister Aleksandar Stamboliyski.

In 1934 pro-Zveno officers like Colonel trade unions and openly attacked the IMRO. Their government introduced a corporatist economy, similar to that of in Benito Mussolini's Italy. King Boris III, an opponent of Zveno, orchestrated a coup through a monarchist Zveno member, General Pencho Zlatev, who became Prime Minister (January 1935). In April 1935, he was replaced by a civilian, Andrei Toshev, also a monarchist. After participating in the Bulgarian coup d'état of 1934, Zveno supporters declared their intention to immediately form an alliance with France and to seek the unification of Bulgaria into an Integral Yugoslavia.[1] Zveno supported an Integral Yugoslavia that included Bulgaria as well as Albania within it.[2]

In 1943 Zveno joined the anti-ceasefire agreement with the Soviet Union.

In 1946, Velchev resigned in protest against communist actions, while Georgiev was succeeded by communist leader People's Republic. Georgiev remained in government until 1962, but Zveno was disbanded as an autonomous organization in 1949. Zveno continued to exist within the Fatherland Front but was by then only a puppet organization.
