Molotov on the Soviet-German Non-Aggression Pact

“The decision to conclude a non-aggression pact between the U.S.S.R. and Germany was adopted after military negotiations with France and Great Britain had reached an impasse… we could not but explore other possibilities of ensuring peace and eliminating the danger of war between Germany and the U.S.S.R. If the British and French Governments refused to reckon with this, that is their affair. It is our duty to think of the interests of the Soviet people, the interests of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. All the more because we are firmly convinced that the interests of the U.S.S.R. coincide with the fundamental interests of the peoples of other countries.”

(V.M. Molotov. The Meaning of the Soviet-German Non-Aggression Pact. New York: Workers Library Publishers, Inc. 1939. pp. 6-7.)
