The greatest battles of WWII in Europe/Asia were fought in the Soviet Union. The German Army was so badly beaten by the Soviets that only a token force of the German Army remained to face the Normandy Invasion of 1944.
Yes. Beginning in 1917, a series of revolutions destroyed the Russian royal system, removed Tsar Nicholas II from power, and formed a provisional government. Later that year, the powerful Bolshevik Party took over and slowly but surely replaced the provisional government throughout the country....

World War 2 started when Germany attacked Poland. The U.S. joined the war when we were bombed by Japan.
Germany agreed to the pact to allow it time to arm and mobilise, however by default this allowed Russia to do the same.
Poland suffered terribly from the German invasion in World War 2, and this is the first time I've ever heard anyone suggest that Poland might have benefitted from the German invasion. Afternote: Under a pre-war deal between Germany and Russia, Russia scored the eastern half of Poland, moving in...

The Katyusha (spell it right) or multiple fired artillery rockets were used for anti-personnel and general Battle use by the Red Army.

Stalin believed that his armies sheer numbers would make up for that plus in the years before the war Stalin had purged the officer corps of so called "traitors" so the army lacked a lot of leadership skills.

Joseph Stalin and Benito Mussolini
Prior to 1917 Russia was a monarchy (ruled by a Czar, which was a type of king or emperor), from 1917 to 1990 it was a communist state ruled by the Politburo (which was a self-perpetuating oligarchy), and from 1990 onwards it has been a democracy (although relatively corrupt, as democracies go).

Joseph Stalin was the leader of the Soviet Union when Germany and the USSR entered into a non-aggression pact in 1939. Vyacheslav Molotov was the Soviet Foreign Minister at the time and was therefore the principal Soviet signatory of the pact.
Russia and Germany were not hostile, in fact. They simply wanted the lands which Poland controlled, and the only way to gain them was by force (since no ruler in any sort of mind hands over an entire state).
Yugoslavia's leader who kept his country independent of the Soviet Union after WW2 was Jozip Broz Tito. Tito was a nickname he adopted when living underground as Secretary of the Yugoslavian Communist Party before the WW2.
The Nazi Soviet Pact was more or less a formality. Stalin knew Hitler would invade Russia regardless of the Pact being signed. He hoped it would buy him time to build up his forces in two fronts. It did do that. He also bought time when Hitler sent his troops into Russia without any winter...
