Attitude of Soviet Union towards Japan in WWII as Japan tried to seek Soviet mediation?


I know that Japan had their last hopes in the Soviet Union's mediation in ending the war with terms favorable to Japan. What was the Soviet Union's attitude towards those efforts by Japan>? I'm pretty sure the Soviet Union was eager to declare war on Japan, not help them out.

Well, Japan and Russia had fought a "little" war in 1939.

Is this a homework/assignment based question? If so, please let us know what you know already, as per the rules, (just briefly), and then we can help you.

Or else the moderators will get nasty with me

curiositay, welcome to the forum.

As Black Dog has already pointed out,we have some criterea that you yourself must meet and I would ask that you read these guidelines:

If you can meet the requisite criteria, I'm sure you'll find that there are numerous members here who are willing and more than capable of helping you.

That said, I would think a useful place for you to start would be, if you can, to explain why you are 'pretty sure the Soviet Union was eager to declare war on Japan, not help them out'? Any elucidation on that would be a big step in the right direction.

Russian archive agrees with Japanese archive. Stalin, the Marxist, accepted the surrender and it was USA who rejected it. The surrender had one condition, which was to save Japan's monarchy. The US already had atom five bombs and Germany surrendered. This information leaked in Japan through Hon. Utsnomia Takuma and a historian wrote a book on this "The Correct History of Japan" in the 1990's. The book published by Shogakukan became the best seller in the history of Japan and was quickly banned under the order from President Clinton. President Medevedev declassified the Russian archive on this and condemned US on this as the preemptive strike against Russia at the cost of Japanese civilians. Also record shows that US/UK already decided to save Japan's monarchy because of the growing concern on the Cold War.

According to Hon Utsnomia, Stalin was asked by the US/UK to invade Manchuria to end the war. Stalin declined saying that Soviet had a nonaggression treaty with Japan. US/UK told Stalin that Russia could take Japan's Northern territory including Saccharin Island as reward. Stalin moved his troops saying that it was to regain the territory Russia lost to Japan.

The role of Stalin was very mysterious indeed as mysterious as that of UK/US. It is a clearly documented fact that Nationalist China went to Moscow to forge an alliance with Soviet as the US was supporting Mao. Also, Stalin was given an atom bomb made by Japan in Korea where they had access to Uranium. Japanese army did not fight when Soviet invaded Manchuria. Officers all took trains back to Japan and abandoned Japanese citizens living in Manchuria. More recently it became public that North Korea was created by Imperial Japan's Army, graduates of famous Nakano School to continue the fight against the USA. South Korea was created by the USA. Report shows that there are a lot of tradition of Japan's Imperial Army survived in North Korea's Red Army. These things surfaced as the relationship between South Korea and Japan worsened.

When you read the "Hull Notes", it becomes clear what the Pacific War was all about.
