The Nazi–Soviet Pact was a nonaggression treaty between the USSR and Germany. By signing a nonaggression pact, the USSR was undermining the plans of the reactionary bourgeois circles and the leaders of the Socialist International to direct aggression against the USSR. According to the Comintern, this treaty was a means to force the British and French governments to conclude a pact with the USSR and to show the parties the need to continue the struggle against German fascism.
