USSR Offered to Join the Axis

Post by Montgomery » 16 Apr 2022 12:30

Hi Guys

Is this True 8O ! the USSR tried to join the AXIS !!
I guess it is irrelevant if they have treaty with Germany around Poland!!

However still interesting what I read on the web that Hitler didn't respond to USSR proposal to join the Axis!!

I appreciate if someone add real resources here

Cheers

"The problem with quotes found in the internet..."

The thing was not about "joining the Axis" but about a separate agreement between countries of the Triparatate Pact and the Soviet Union:

More fun would be to see how that changed in the USSR after Barbarossa.

There were some additional demands from USSR after the finish of Polish Invasion!
e.g. They demanded port on Baltic states ! - Ribbentrop telexed Hitler and Hitler approved the revision!
Hitler showed flexibility here because of UK/French declaration of War on Germany. :lol:
