In Hearts of Iron 3 the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact decision and event is an agreement between Germany and the Soviet Union

Context

The Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact, colloquially named after the Soviet foreign minister Vyacheslav Molotov and the German foreign minister Joachim von Ribbentrop, was an agreement officially titled the Treaty of Non-Aggression between Germany and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and signed in Moscow in the early hours of 24 August 1939 (but dated 23 August). It was a Non-Aggression Pact between the two countries and pledged neutrality by either party if the other were attacked by a third party. Each signatory promised not to join any grouping of powers that was "directly or indirectly aimed at the other party." It remained in effect until 22 June 1941 when Germany implemented Operation Barbarossa, invading the Soviet Union.

In addition to stipulations of non-aggression, the treaty included a secret protocol dividing Northern and Eastern Europe into German and Soviet spheres of influence, anticipating potential "territorial and political rearrangements" of these countries. Thereafter, Germany and the Soviet Union invaded their respective sides of Poland, dividing the country between them. Part of eastern Finland was annexed by the Soviet Union after an attempted invasion. This was followed by Soviet annexations of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and eastern and northern Romania.

Pact

In order for Germany to fire the Pact it is not in an alliance with the Soviet Union, which exists along with Poland, none of those nations are at war or subjects, Austria does not exist (Anschluss), the First Vienna Award took place or Germany controls Praha, and Poland is not in the Axis or in an alliance with Germany.

A.I. Germany will fire the event 100% of the time, which improves relations with the Soviet Union by 15 but reduced them Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania by 75, and reduced England's and France's neutrality by five.
