The secret Additional Protocol signed by Joachim von Ribbentrop and Vyacheslav Molotov, which is an integral part of the non-aggression pact between the Third Reich and the Soviet Union at that time, consists of four points.

What was in the additional protocol?

The first states that:

In the event of territorial and political transformations in the territories belonging to the Baltic states (Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania), the northern border of Lithuania will also be the border between the areas of interest of Germany and the Soviet Union. Therefore, both sides recognize Lithuania’s interest in the Vilnius region.

The second point, directly related to Poland, reads as follows:

In the event of territorial and political transformations in the territory of the Polish state, the border between the regions of importance for Germany and the Soviet Union would extend approximately along the line of the Nario, Vistula and San rivers. The question of whether it is in the common interest to maintain an independent Polish state and what the borders of that state are, can only be clarified in the context of other political events. In any case, the two governments will settle this matter by an amicable agreement.

The next point relates to the region of Southeast Europe. The Soviet side confirmed its interest in Bessarabia (belonging to Romania), while the German side expressed a complete lack of interest in these areas.

The last point of the document states:

This protocol will be treated by both parties as the most confidential.
