Termination of pact[edit]

It would be better to call Operation Barbarossa the termination of the pact, rather than Hitler breaking the pact. Stalin had already violated the pact nearly a year earlier by annexing Bukovina. (165.120.240.77 (talk) 19:38, 3 September 2016 (UTC))

  • Another long-term effect of the fifty years of the Soviet orwellian propaganda is the claim of the "invasion of the Soviet Union known as Operation Barbarossa" ... which in fact was an attack on the Red Army positions in eastern Poland under the Soviet occupation since 17 September 1939. See the opening paragraph in the same section: "Termination of the Pact." Poeticbent talk 21:09, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

The Blitz[edit]

Surely the article should mention that Stalin supplied all the fuel the Luftwaffe used to blitz the UK in 1940-41? (CharltonR (talk) 15:49, 4 September 2016 (UTC))

Yes I agree. There ought to be a section on the consequences of the pact on Britain and how it helped the Nazi war effort in the west. --Nug (talk) 11:02, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

Soviet invasion of Poland?[edit]

The USSR went into Belarus and Ukraine, parts that were occupied by Poland in the 20's. These lands has never been considered polish by any nation, besides Poland. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.136.43.37 (talk) 05:38, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

They were sovereign Polish territory. (2A00:23C4:6388:7300:9466:24C7:CE39:69D9 (talk) 19:03, 22 November 2016 (UTC))

Not a non-aggression/neutrality pact[edit]

The pact was designed to allow eastern Europe to be invaded by Germany and the Soviet Union, beginning with the joint invasion of Poland. Therefore it cannot seriously be called a non-aggression or a neutrality pact, as it was an agreement to commit aggression. (Sideboard1 (talk) 19:03, 30 January 2017 (UTC))

That's the official term used by both sides. Today it's clear it wasn't a non-agression pact for the affection nations caught inbetween. --Denniss (talk)
