In 1941:

The USSR and Yugoslavia signed a Treaty of friendship and non-aggression that almost nothing of Yugoslavia did not give, and only protested the Soviet Union against the aggressive policy of Germany in the Balkans (remember, still the Union of Germany and the Balkans – in the "interests" of Moscow, is still in negotiations with Hitler in Berlin Molotov insisted not to spread the war to the Balkans). The Soviet government immediately informed the German Ambassador von der Schulenburg about the fact of signing of the contract, and he telegraphed to Berlin: Stalin hoped that proactive steps will convince the German government to make "in its relations with Yugoslavia everything possible to maintain peace". The Soviet-Yugoslav Treaty provided for a policy of friendly relations in the case that one Contracting party attacked. Early on the morning of 6 April, when Moscow has just ended the Banquet on the occasion of signing the Treaty, Germany invaded Yugoslavia. The only step from our side was the message of the people's Commissariat of foreign Affairs of 13 April, which condemned aggression of Hungary, acceded 11 April attack on Yugoslavia.

German foreign Minister summarized the data on the supply of raw materials from the USSR to Germany: "After the conclusion of the German-Soviet economic from January 10, 1941 there was a noticeable restraint on the Soviet side in the practical implementation of the Soviet deliveries, which is probably partly was due to the cooling of political relations with the Reich. Changes to this plan occurred in March. Delivery in March has grown rapidly, especially the supply of grain, oil, manganese ore, non-ferrous and precious metals. The bread contract, obtained after a hard fight, brought shipments of grain to 1.4 million tonnes by September this year, at relatively favorable prices. The transit through Siberia, as usual, is proceeding satisfactorily. At our request the Soviet government even allocated at our disposal at the Manchurian border special for transportation of rubber..."
