I don't know you, because you democracies are against communism.
Can you provide us with support to protect against German attacks.
Negotiating with Stalin
So if we stay neutral and don't attack you, you won't attack us.
Yes but only if you do as the pact says.
The Nazi-Soviet Pact
Now I can prepare for a conflict with those Nazis down the road. Hahaha
The British and French wanted help from the Soviet Union to help protect German attacks, however the Soviet Union was skeptical because the Western democracies were against communism. British (navy) France (red) Soviets( dark red)
Stalin and Hitler made the German-soviet nonaggression pact which said that they could not attack each other and they had to stay neutral when the other went to war.
Stalin hoped to distract Hitler and prevent an attack on the Soviet Union by directing his attention to the West. Afterwards this gave Hitler a big military advantage.
