It was the Molotov - Ribbentrop 's Pact (the names of the foreign ministers from each country). Germany wanted to change the situation regarding the Polish corridor which separated Eastern Prussia from the rest of the nation. Hitler decided to invade Poland and he needed the Soviet Union on his side as he realised that he could not fight on two fronts. Although Hitler and Stalin hated each other , they signed this non-agression pact, also called the Nazi-soviet Pact. They agreed not to attack each other. They also secretly agreed to divide Poland between themselves, and the Soviet Union was allowed to deal with the Baltic states (Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia)as it wanted to.
