Abstract

The picture of complex relations between France and the USSR in the period from signing of the Munich Agreement to the beginning of the Soviet-Finnish war of 1939—1940 is described. The study is based on the materials of the Foreign Policy Archive of the Russian Federation: excerpts from French newspapers of different political orientations, reports and information sheets of the staff of the Soviet Embassy in France, records of conversations between diplomats of France and the USSR in Moscow. The author dwells on all key events of French and Soviet foreign policy in 1938—1939 and examines them through the prism of French public opinion, diplomatic decisions and assessments of both countries.
