“Soviet-German non-aggression treaty” Foreign press about the Soviet-German non-aggression treaty (Leningradskaya Pravda, USSR)

31


The contract is published 25 August 1939g.

The non-aggression treaty concluded between the Soviet Union and Germany, the text of which we publish today, is a document of major importance, reflecting the consistent peace policy of the Soviet Union.

The foreign policy of the Soviet Union invariably proceeded from the desire to defend and preserve the cause of peace. In this policy, the USSR invariably sought to maintain and strengthen friendly and business ties with all those states that shared this position. In his report on the foreign policy of the Soviet Union, Comrade Stalin in his report at the XVIII Congress of the Party stated:
"We stand for peace and strengthen business ties with all countries, we stand and will continue to stand in this position, because these countries will maintain the same relations with the Soviet Union, because they will not try to violate the interests of our country."

The non-aggression treaty concluded by the Soviet Union and Germany is in full accordance with the position of the Soviet Union as defined by Comrade Stalin.

Relations between the USSR and Germany since the restoration of normal diplomatic relations were governed consistently by the Raphal agreement concluded in 1922 and the neutrality agreement concluded on April 24 by 1926. The 1926 Treaty of the Year establishes that “in the event that one of the contracting parties, despite the peace-loving course of action, is attacked by a third power or several third powers, the other contracting party will maintain neutrality throughout the conflict”. The same contract stated that “if in connection with the conflict referred to in Art. A character of 2, or when none of the contracting parties is involved in armed clashes, a coalition will be formed between the third powers to expose one of the contracting parties to an economic or financial boycott, the other contracting party will not join this coalition. ”

The non-aggression pact signed by 23 on August, as indicated in its text, proceeds from these basic provisions of the 1926 agreement of the year, but at the same time contains further development of these provisions in order to strengthen peaceful relations between the two countries. Thus, Article I of the treaty states that both contracting parties undertake to refrain from any aggressive actions against each other, both separately and jointly with other powers.
Article II of the Treaty provides for the neutrality of the relevant contracting party in the event that the other party becomes the object of military action of a third power.

Undoubtedly, Article IV-I is of the greatest importance, which imposes on the contracting parties the obligation not to participate in any faction of the powers, which is directly or indirectly directed against another country.

The importance of Article V of the Treaty is determined by the fact that it provides for an exclusively peaceful method of settling all disputes and conflicts in the event that any arise between the two Contracting Parties.

The ten-year term of the treaty, established by Article VI, shows that both parties are showing a desire to secure peaceful relations between the two countries for a long period of time.

The content of each individual clause of the treaty, as well as the entire treaty as a whole, is permeated with a desire to avoid conflict, to strengthen peaceful and business relations between both states. There is no doubt that the nonaggression pact concluded eliminates the tension that existed in relations between the USSR and Germany.

However, the significance of the concluded agreement goes beyond the framework of settling relations only between the two contracting countries. It is concluded at a time when the international situation has reached a very great acuity and tension. The peace act, which is the non-aggression treaty between the USSR and Germany, will undoubtedly help alleviate tensions in the international situation, will undoubtedly help to defuse these tensions.

The conclusion of a treaty between the USSR and Germany is undoubtedly a fact of major international importance, for the treaty is an instrument of peace, designed not only to strengthen good-neighborly relations between the USSR and Germany, but also to serve the cause of universal peace.

The feud between Germany and the USSR is ending. The difference in ideology and in the political system should not and cannot serve as an obstacle to the establishment of good-neighborly relations between the two countries. The friendship of the peoples of the USSR and Germany, driven into a dead end by the efforts of the enemies of Germany and the USSR, must henceforth obtain the necessary conditions for its development and prosperity.


(The foremost "Truth" from 24 August)

Foreign press on the Soviet-German non-aggression pact



Germany, Berlin, 25 August 1939 (TASS).
Newspapers today post articles about the Soviet Union. The Deutsche Algemeine Zeitung publishes new information about the population of the USSR based on the 1939 census data, as well as the long article The Economic Basis of the Soviet Union. Articles about the Soviet Union also include other newspapers.
Evening newspapers post a message to the Moscow correspondent of the German Information Bureau, which provides an extensive overview of today's Moscow press.

USA, New York, 24 August 1939 (TASS).
The announcement of the Soviet-German non-aggression treaty caused exceptionally lively responses from the American press.
Famous American journalist Dorothy Thompson made a radio speech, stating that the non-aggression pact between the USSR and Germany represents a huge diplomatic victory for the Soviet Union. The international significance of the treaty is emphasized by Leland Stowe in the New York Herald Tribune, political analyst for the Associated Press Mackenzie, and several Washington correspondents in American newspapers.
Many correspondents believe that the conclusion of a treaty means a strong rebuff to Munich, who tried to incite Germany to the Soviet Union.
The New York Daily News newspaper writes that the Soviet-German non-aggression pact reduces the threat of war.
The newspaper notes that this treaty is beneficial for the United States, as it weakens the position of Japan. Thus, the newspaper writes, "indirectly, the Soviet-German treaty is beneficial for the United States, since Japan is our probable adversary."

England, London, 24 August 1939 (TASS).
The London newspapers reproduce, in the most prominent places, the report on the conclusion of the German-Soviet treaty and the text of the treaty itself.
The conclusion of the treaty gave a number of newspapers and politicians grounds for sharp criticism of Chamberlain’s policy. The observer of the Star newspaper writes: “Moscow believes that Chamberlain never thought of concluding a pact with Soviet Russia, that Chamberlain contented himself with the idea of ​​convening a confederation of five powers from which the Soviet Union would be excluded.”
"Manchester Guardian" notes that "the events of recent years have inspired the Soviet government a deep distrust of French and English politics."
The Daily Worker calls on the House of Commons to get Chamberlain to answer why he brought England to the eve of the war with his policies. The newspaper places in a prominent place the resolution of metalworkers of the Rosenside plant in Barking, which states: “We are delighted with the patience shown by the USSR in negotiations with the British government, and we consider the policy of the Soviet government to sign the non-aggression pact with Germany to be correct. We believe that this once again testifies to the power of the Soviet Union. ”

England, London, 25 August 1939 (TASS).
The English press continues to pay great attention to the non-aggression treaty between Germany and the USSR.
The newspaper "Yorkshire Post" writes about the "disappointment" of British leaders, caused by the conclusion of a non-aggression pact. At the same time, the newspaper acknowledges that the USSR had grounds for many suspicions, and cites evidence of the intensive backstage activities of British diplomacy (the newspaper recalls Hudson’s conversation with Woltat, the proposal to convene a conference without the USSR, etc.).

France, Paris, 24 August 1939 (TASS).
The French press pays great attention to the non-aggression treaty between the USSR and Germany. The newspaper "Tan" cites the contents of Pravda and Izvestia editorials on the treaty.
A number of newspapers close to official circles are trying to mislead French public opinion about the real substance and meaning of the contract. It is characteristic that the journals Journal de Debay, Tan and others, which were strenuously striving to push the Soviet Union against Germany, are now tweaking in every possible way to prove that the contract is unprofitable for both parties.
The newspapers close to the official circles are trying to shift responsibility onto the USSR for the failure of the Anglo-French-Soviet negotiations. Responding to these insinuations, the newspaper Sé Souar states that the British and French military missions that arrived in Moscow did not have the authority even to conclude agreements of a purely technical nature. The newspaper stresses that in London a rumor was strenuously circulating that Chamberlain, by sending a military mission to Moscow, wanted thereby to facilitate his own dissolution of parliament for the holidays.

France, Paris, 25 August 1939 (TASS).
Humanite and Sesouar newspapers receive hundreds of resolutions from social, cultural and trade union organizations endorsing the USSR’s peaceful policy. Newspapers publish among others a resolution of the association “Peace and Freedom Movements”, welcoming the great diplomatic success achieved by the Soviet Union. Similar resolutions were received from the Union of the Agricultural Youth of France, from some municipal councils and other organizations.

Bulgaria, Sofia, 27 August 1939 (TASS).
Since the publication of the announcement of the non-aggression treaty between Germany and the USSR, the Bulgarian press has paid great attention to this issue.
The government official "Dnes" in the August issue of 25 in an editorial article believes that normal relations between Germany and the USSR have always been a decisive factor in the preservation of European peace. The newspaper notes that the conclusion of a treaty plays a particularly large role for small neutral countries, which can now be sure of their future existence.

USA, New York, 27 August 1939 (TASS).
Articles continue to appear in the American press in connection with the conclusion of the Soviet-German non-aggression treaty.
The newspaper Baltimore Sen writes that the Soviet-German non-aggression treaty destroys the Anti-Comintern Pact.
London correspondent for the Chicago Daily News, Stonman, states that the very tense situation created in Europe is the result of the worst mistakes that British diplomacy has made over the years.

Germany, Berlin, 27 August 1939 (TASS).
The German press continues to pay great attention to the non-aggression treaty between Germany and the USSR.
Newspapers contain a number of economic articles devoted to the Soviet Union. Especially noteworthy is the extensive, on a whole page, article by the Moscow correspondent of the newspaper Frankfurter Zeitung - "The Political Geography of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics".

    How strikingly different is the opinion of the Western media of that time from the position of modern Western politicians and their magazines. Of course, double standards existed then, but still such cynicism, as it was not now. Hitler at his side acted soberingly, like ammonia.
    And the current Western liberals are insolent to such an extent that they equated Stalinism with Nazism, and the Molotov Pact - Ribbentrop and, especially its additional protocol, were branded as a conspiracy with the Nazis to divide democratic Europe. But the Yalta Treaty does not bother them. Apparently because Western leaders personally took part in the restructuring of Europe. Those. it is possible, in principle, to divide and rule in Europe, but only with the consent and with the obligatory participation of European leaders. Then you can temporarily forget about democratic values.

      Particularly violent attacks on the "non-aggression pact" are made by modern Ukrainian nationalists of various persuasions, including the neo-fascist social-nationalist party "Svoboda", the majority of whose followers live, as you know, in western Ukraine, whose territory, according to the dividing line on the division of spheres of influence , withdrawn on the basis of a "non-aggression pact" went to the Soviet Union, and now belongs to Ukraine. These statements by Ukrainian nationalists are completely devoid of elementary common sense and logic - if you think that this territory came to you unfairly, then return this territory to Poland, and go wherever you stroke your eyes or hang yourself. But it is known that almost the entire population of western Ukraine of draft age in those years fought on the side of Nazi Germany in various military formations.

    The non-aggression pact between the USSR and Germany was needed by the USSR.
    Everyone understood this at that time, even in the West, recognizing themselves that the leadership of England and France did not consciously agree to a contractual relationship with the USSR and thereby pushed the leadership of the USSR to conclude at least some kind of peace treaty with one of the warring parties before the war.
    The governments of England and France outplayed themselves, leaving their countries without a powerful ally of the USSR in the upcoming war, thereby ensuring the defeat of their states.
    This was perfectly understood by Churchill, who, after coming to power after Chamberlain, took all steps to draw the USSR into his war on his side.
    And now, after more than half a century, everyone screamed, including and individual Russians that the USSR and Stalin I.V. were organizers of the war, concluding a non-aggression pact with Nazi Germany. The height of cynicism and ignorance of the reality of the events taking place at that time.

    In general, they had for fools in 1939 and continue to have in 2012. I am already silent that the reviews were pulled out that are loyal, but no one knew about the secret addition at that time. And the words about "friendship between the peoples of the USSR and Germany" are simply washing away, this is in two years " the people of Germany "will become fascists, monsters, enemies. And it is simply not clear how the simple truth cannot reach many - in 1939 the aggressor in Europe is Germany, the countries of Europe - England, France, Poland that to bridle Germany conclude a collective agreement, the USSR Germany is also hesitating, the war against England, France, Poland, the USSR is hopeless. But this treaty removes the USSR. And after the conquest of Poland, with the help of the USSR and France, it’s the turn of the USSR. But if the USSR sided with the collective agreement, Germany would not risk zero start World War II. And tales about stitching for fools, because in 1941 Germany became many times more powerful than Germany in 1939. And how the USSR prepared for war, this is already blasphemy, given how many ordinary soldiers were killed at the head ny period of the war and not only soldiers.

      "What a provocation, where did the Polish flag come from?"

      Yes, because you are "petro", the Polish "back and forth" position.

      When representatives of the USSR at the negotiations in 1939 invited the representatives of England and France to conclude an alliance against Nazi Germany and force their ally Poland, in case of war, to let Soviet troops through the territory of Germany through their territory, the representatives of England and France refused.
      Then the "allies" thought to incite Germany together with Poland against the USSR, about which the treacherous Poland was negotiating with Germany. But it didn't work out.
      Hitler had his own plans to deal with all the annoying Poles, and he dreamed of uniting East Prussia with Germany, and not concluding an alliance with the Poles.
      So, nobody thought of collective security except the USSR. Everyone dreamed with the hands of Nazi Germany to get rid of the USSR.

          Do not hope not to disappear and I am not going to disappear. It's just that the policy here is if the opinion does not coincide with the majority, no matter the right or wrong - restrictions on comments. As in a madhouse, psychos consider themselves to be normal, and the staff is out of their minds. the account of my flag is Russian unnecessarily, always, but I am writing not the first day, it was Ukrainian and in the Ukraine account. And the flag was determined by IP, but here it is obvious that someone from the moderators is doing minor dirty tricks. And at the expense of the pact under discussion, then the excuses of some, such as that the USSR, England and France provoked the signing, looks childish. And history, as if you don't rewrite or hide anything, the secret always becomes clear. Especially in our time when there is independent media, the Internet. And the position of some is surprising, after all, it is clear that the signing of this pact provoked Germany to the beginning of the Second World War. Yes, and the USSR itself actually took part in its unleashing, suffice it to recall the "parade of winners" in Brest in 1939.

    It has long been clear to everyone that Russia, in the eyes of the West, was to blame and will be to blame. Blame for the Napoleonic wars and Napoleon's invasion of Russia, blame for the beginning of World War I, blame for the beginning of World War II, for taking care of her safety, she signed a Non-Aggression Pact with Germany, which was treacherously violated by Hitler's attack on The USSR, in which almost all of Europe participated, as a result of which the USSR suffered enormous material and human losses - more than 1 MILLION people. And the reason for the seemingly incurable chronic cave-like hostility of the West towards Russia lies only in the fact that it is Russia, the state of RUSSIANS, stubbornly professing Orthodoxy, uncontrollable by the Vatican and having the "audacity" to have and defend their own opinion on world problems, thereby hindering the West, as bone in the throat, reign supreme!

    miserable poor little psheks (

    Well, yes, and now everyone is talking about Katyn! Again "unfortunate" !!!! Although it is far from proven that the death of the Poles is the fault of the USSR!
    And at that time the USSR did everything to delay the beginning of the war with Germany. No one has counted on 20 years.

    Oles the troll is not for dec ... laughing

    Actually, the repost from the newspaper, which for a long time has been the main instrument of propaganda in the USSR, causes a smile. A Soviet person could not compare what the newspapers of Europe actually wrote with what they wrote in all sorts of "truths."

      To the point, there is still not enough assessment of the pact with the "Völkischer Beobachter". The Germans also rubbed that this pact is a step towards peace. But for some reason, some cannot understand how it all ended. By the way, the Germans got it.

    There is, in my opinion, of course, a very good book: "The USSR-Germany is subject to publicity. 1939-1941". In fact, this book is a collection of diplomatic documents from the German Foreign Ministry and some materials from the Pravda newspaper. The most valuable thing in the book is that there is no need to take the commentaries of historians as truth, you draw conclusions yourself. Very interesting book! Everything is lit!

      In vain do you think so:
      The collection is based on two types of sources. First are
      diplomatic documents of the German Foreign Office. In 1948 they were published in German and English by the US Department of State *. All diplomatic documents used in this collection are adapted from this publication of the US government. In addition to this, the collection includes some materials published in the Pravda newspaper.

        If you have any refutations to the published documents, then you are kindly requested to provide links, it will be very interesting for me to read these refutations, of course, without the comments of "historians". After reading the book (collection), I did not find other sources, I even looked for discrepancies in words, commas and periods ... Tell me please - what was the interest in 1948 of the United States and Britain to shield the interests of the USSR? There was no longer any interest. That is why the original documents were not available for so long. This is mine.

    8 company,
    The same opinion ... then, as now, all empires, including the USSR, were playing their own game ... Was it right to remain peaceful while future potential enemies were swollen with human and material resources ... It’s a pity, that we did not win this game by destroying half the country .. For the Americans, being overseas, it turned out to be easier ..

    Yes, what can I say. The peace treaty was listed only in name. Actually, this is a treaty for dividing the spheres of influence by strong states, an eructation of colonialism. In fulfillment of this treaty, the USSR attacked Finland, since it fell into the sphere of interests of the USSR. Well, of course, in the post-war period, the Communists began to justify this attack with alpine arguments.

    In general, WW2 is the last bloody sigh of the era of colonialism. Countries lagging behind in the capture of colonies in previous centuries, decided to redo the world. Countries without colonies and started a war. Germany, Japan, Italy.

      Dear, it is strange that you did not enroll the USSR in the country that unleashed the war !!! And with Suomi it was simply prosaic-they offered to move the border away from St. Petersburg and lease Hanko, in exchange for money and territory twice as much as requested !!! But where is there !!! Proud Finnish the guys refused, hoping for the support of the Anglo-Saxons !!! And their "millionaires" did not help them mercilessly !!! And even at the conclusion of the peace, they had the conscience to ask for compensation referring to the experience with Peter the Great !!! Molotov reasonably noted you turn to Peter and if he gives the go-ahead we will pay !!! Ha-ha !!! One-on-one situation with proud Poles, only they refused Germany, and were also thrown by their allies !!! So they are these countries that unleashed wars England , France and Poland !!! Serves them right !!! The Finns now understand that it is better to live in peace with the Russians !!! But the arrogant Poles still break their spears by rewriting the facts !!! In a word, as Poland was, the hyena of Europe remains! !!
