If Germany, contrary to expectations, falls into a difficult situation, then you can be sure that the Soviet people will come to the aid of Germany and will not allow Germany to be strangled. The Soviet Union is interested in a strong Germany and will not allow it to be plunged to the ground.

I know how much the German nation loves its Führer; I should, therefore, like to drink to his health.

Anti-Comintern Pact had in fact frightened principally the City of London and the English shopkeepers.

England, despite her weakness, would wage war craftily and stubbornly. France still had an army worthy of consideration.

11:05

The English Army was weak; nor was the British Navy as important as it had formerly been. England's air arm was being increased, to be sure, but there was a lack of pilots. If England dominated the world in spite of this, that was due to the stupidity of the other countries that always let themselves be bluffed. It was ridiculous, for example, that a few hundred Englishmen should dominate India.

Do not you think that we should reckon with public opinion in our countries? Over the years we muddled each other. And now suddenly everything should be forgotten, as if it did not exist? Such things do not pass so quickly. We - and I think that this also applies to the German government - should be more cautious in informing our peoples about the change that has taken place in relations between our two countries.

If Japan wants war, she can get it. The Soviet Union is not afraid of it and is ready for confrontation. If Japan wants peace, then so much the better! Red Army soldiers perekoloshmatili beatnot less than 20 thousand Japanese - the only language that these Asians understand.

The Germans want peace and therefore welcome the establishment of friendly relations between the Reich and the Soviet Union. Knowing how much the German people love their Fuhrer, I would like to drink to their health!

The Soviet Union takes the pact very seriously, and I can honestly assure you that the Soviet Union will not deceive its partner.

10:15

I thank you for the letter. I hope that the German-Soviet non-aggression pact will bring about a decided turn for the better in the political relations between our countries.

The peoples of our countries need peaceful relations with each other. The assent of the German Government to the conclusion of a non-aggression pact provides the foundation for eliminating the political tension and for the establishment of peace and collaboration between our countries.

1) I sincerely welcome the signing of the new German-Soviet Commercial Agreement as the first step in the re-shaping of German-Soviet relations.

2) The conclusion of a non-aggression pact with the Soviet Union means to me the establishment of German policy for a long time. Germany thereby resumes a political course that was beneficial to both States during bygone centuries. The Government of the Reich are therefore resolved in such a case to accept all the consequences of such a far-reaching change.



On the eve of war you disrupt the Red Army, the love and pride of our country, the bulwark of its might. You have beheaded the Red Army and the Red Navy. You have killed the most talented commanders, those who were educated through experience in the world war and the civil war, headed by the brilliant Marshal Tukhachevsky. You exterminated the heroes of the civil war, who had reorganised the Red Army in accordance with the most up-to-date military technique, and made it invincible. See more

At a terrible moment of war-danger, when the spearhead of fascism is aimed at the Soviet Union, when the struggle over Danzig and the war in China are merely preparing places d’armes for future intervention against the USSR, when the principal object of German and Japanese aggression is our motherland, when the only possible means of preventing war is for the Soviet Union to enter openly into the international bloc of democratic states, concluding as soon as may be a military and political pact with Britain and France, you waver, hesitate, vacillate like a pendulum between the ‘axes’.

In all your calculations in politics, both external and internal, you proceed not from love for the motherland, which is alien to you, but from animal fear of losing your personal power.
