Background and history[edit] After the Fall of France and the subsequent expansion of the Axis Powers, the Soviet Union
Soviet Union
wished to mend its diplomatic relations in the Far East in order to safeguard its eastern border and concentrate on the European theatre of war. On the other hand, Japan, bogged down in a seemingly interminable war with China and with diplomatic relations with the United States
United States
rapidly deteriorating, sought an accommodation with the Soviet Union
Soviet Union
that would improve its international standing and secure the northern frontier of Manchukuo against possible Soviet invasion.[citation needed] Stalin was initially unaware of Hitler's briefing to his generals that an attack on the Soviet Union
Soviet Union
by the European Axis Powers
Axis Powers
would enable Japan to challenge the United States
United States
overtly. This briefing was based on the belief that if such an attack occurred, the Soviet Union
Soviet Union
would be too preoccupied with fighting Germany, thus making Japan feel less threatened by any possible Soviet invasion of Manchukuo, allowing Japan to have enough provisions and capabilities to start a war with the United States. This treaty Stalin made would allow neither Japan nor the Soviet Union
Soviet Union
to have to fight in multiple fronts. Stalin believed that his "problems can be solved in a natural way if the Soviets and the Japanese cooperate". After concluding the nonaggression treaty, Stalin, in an unprecedented gesture, saw Foreign Minister Yosuke Matsuoka
Yosuke Matsuoka
off at the train station. This was symbolic of the importance Stalin attached to the treaty; it also provided him with the occasion – in the presence of the entire diplomatic corps – to invite negotiations with Germany while flaunting his increased bargaining power.[1] The treaty[2] was signed in Moscow
Moscow
on April 13, 1941, by Foreign Minister Yosuke Matsuoka
Yosuke Matsuoka
and Ambassador Yoshitsugu Tatekawa
Yoshitsugu Tatekawa
for Japan and Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Mikhailovich Molotov
Vyacheslav Mikhailovich Molotov
for the Soviet Union. On the same day, the same people also signed a declaration regarding Mongolia
Mongolia
and Manchuria.[3] The Soviet Union
Soviet Union
pledged to respect the territorial integrity and inviolability of Manchukuo, while Japan did the same for the Mongolian People's Republic. Later, in 1941, Japan, as a signatory of the Tripartite Pact, considered denouncing the Soviet–Japanese Neutrality Pact, especially after Nazi Germany
Nazi Germany
invaded the Soviet Union
Soviet Union
(Operation Barbarossa), but made the crucial decision to keep it and to expand southwards invading the European colonies in Southeast Asia
Southeast Asia
instead. Historians after the war found evidence that had Stalingrad fallen, Japan would have invaded Siberia. On April 5, 1945 the Soviet Union
Soviet Union
denounced the pact, informing the Japanese government that "in accordance with Article Three of the above mentioned pact, which envisaged the right of denunciation one year before the lapse of the five-year period of operation of the pact, the Soviet Government hereby makes known to the Government of Japan its wish to denounce the pact of April 13, 1941."[4] The wording of the denunciation suggested that the Soviet Union
Soviet Union
wished to see the treaty go out of effect immediately, and Time magazine reported that the Soviet Foreign Commissar's tone indicated that the Soviet Union might go to war with Japan soon.[5] However, the text of the treaty clearly stated that the pact remained in force until April 1946. When pressed by the Japanese Ambassador Naotake Sato, Molotov confirmed that the treaty did remain in force until April 1946.[6] On August 9, 1945, just after midnight, the Soviet Union
Soviet Union
invaded Manchuria. The declaration of war followed nearly six hours later. Since the time zone difference of 7 hours, the declaration of war could be still dated August 8, 1945, being handed in Moscow
Moscow
at 11 p.m.[7] Treaty[edit]

of the First Class and the Order of the Golden Kite
Order of the Golden Kite

who, after an exchange of their credentials, which were found in due and proper form, have agreed on the following:

Article two: Should one of the Contracting Parties become the object of hostilities on the part of one or several third powers, the other Contracting Party will observe neutrality throughout the duration of the conflict. Article three: The present Pact

In confirmation whereof the above-named Representatives have signed the present Pact

Moscow
on April 13, 1941, which corresponds to the 13th day of the fourth month of the 16th year of Showa. V. Molotov; Yosuke Matsuoka; Yoshitsugu Tatekawa

Declaration[edit]

DECLARATION[3] In conformity with the spirit of the Pact
Pact
on neutrality concluded on April 13, 1941, between the U.S.S.R. and Japan, the Government of the U.S.S.R. and the Government of Japan, in the interest of insuring peaceful and friendly relations between the two countries, solemnly declare that the U.S.S.R. pledges to respect the territorial integrity and inviolability of Manchoukuo and Japan pledges to respect the territorial integrity and inviolability of the Mongolian People's Republic. Moscow, April 13, 1941 On behalf of the Government of the U.S.S.R. V. MOLOTOV On behalf of the Government of Japan YOSUKE MATSUOKA YOSHITSUGU TATEKAWA

Denunciation[edit]

Soviet Denunciation of the Pact
Pact
with Japan[4] The American Ambassador at Moscow
Moscow
transmitted to the Secretary of State, by a telegram dated April 5, 1945, the following statement, as received from the press section of the Foreign Office, regarding Soviet denunciation of the U.S.S.R.-Japanese neutrality pact: " Today at 3 p.m. People's Commissar
People's Commissar
for Foreign Affairs of the USSR Mr. V. M. Molotov, received the Japanese Ambassador, Mr. N. Sato, and made the following statement to him in the name of the Soviet Government: 'The neutrality pact between the Soviet Union
Soviet Union
and Japan was concluded on April 13, 1941, that is, before the attack of Germany on the USSR and before the outbreak of war between Japan on the one hand and England and the United States
United States
on the other. Since that time the situation has been basically altered. Germany has attacked the USSR, and Japan, ally of Germany, is aiding the latter in its war against the USSR. Furthermore Japan is waging a war with the USA and England, which are allies of the Soviet Union. In these circumstances the neutrality pact between Japan and the USSR has lost its sense, and the prolongation of that pact has become impossible. On the strength of the above and in accordance with Article Three of the above mentioned pact, which envisaged the right of denunciation one year before the lapse of the five-year period of operation of the pact, the Soviet Government hereby makes know [sic] to the Government of Japan its wish to denounce the pact of April 13, 1941.' The Japanese Ambassador Mr. N. Sato, promised to inform the Japanese Government of the statement of the Soviet Government."

Declaration of War[edit]

Soviet Declaration of War on Japan[8] London, Aug., 8, 1945 - Foreign Commissar Molotov's (sic) announcement of the declaration of war, as broadcast by Moscow, follows: "On Aug. 8, People's Commissar
People's Commissar
for Foreign Affairs of the U.S.S.R. Molotov received the Japanese Ambassador, Mr. Sato, and gave him, on behalf of the Soviet Government, the following for transmission to the Japanese Government: 'After the defeat and capitulation of Hitlerite Germany, Japan became the only great power that still stood for the continuation of the war. The demand of the three powers, the United States, Great Britain and China, on July 26 for the unconditional surrender of the Japanese armed forces was rejected by Japan, and thus the proposal of the Japanese Government to the Soviet Union
Soviet Union
on mediation in the war in the Far East loses all basis. Taking into consideration the refusal of Japan to capitulate, the Allies submitted to the Soviet Government a proposal to join the war against Japanese aggression and thus shorten the duration of the war, reduce the number of victims and facilitate the speedy restoration of universal peace. Loyal to its Allied duty, the Soviet Government has accepted the proposals of the Allies and has joined in the declaration of the Allied powers of July 26. The Soviet Government considers that this policy is the only means able to bring peace nearer, free the people from further sacrifice and suffering and give the Japanese people the possibility of avoiding the dangers and destruction suffered by Germany after her refusal to capitulate unconditionally. In view of the above, the Soviet Government declares that from tomorrow, that is from Aug. 9, the Soviet Government will consider itself to be at war with Japan.' "
