Abstract
The Soviet policy in Spain at the first stage of Civil war,1936-1939, is examined on the basis of the big circle of documents. Archival materials entered into a scientific revolution have allowed to restore real sides of a problems more full, to consider some little-known mechanisms of USSR's foreign policy in a pre- war time. Analysis of documents gives the opportunity to rethink of some of the provisions and conclusions of the Soviet position in the Spanish civil war. Soviet tactics in the Spanish question at the initial stage of the civil war has evolved from the position of the observer (July 1936) to one of the creators of the system of non-intervention to the Spanish affairs (August 1936.); next - fast enough positioning of their interests and becoming a participant of the Spanish events (from the end of September - October 1936.). It was supported by active diplomatic struggle in the Committee of non-intervention to Spain and intensive propaganda campaign around the events in Spain. The image of the USSR in Europe significantly staggered against this background.
