THE TELEGRAM OF THE PEOPLE'S COMMISSAR OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS OF THE USSR OF V. M. MOLOTOV TO THE PLENIPOTENTIARY OF THE USSR IN FINLAND TO V.K.DEREVYANSKY
October 6, 1939.
Sent at 0 o'clock 45 min.
I proposed today to the Finnish government through Yrjö-Koskinen about desirability of the fastest arrival to Moscow Finnish minister for foreign affairs for discussion about topical issues in the Soviet-Finnish relations, especially bearing in mind that in Europe there is a big war. Yrjö-Koskinen promised to report the reply of the Finnish government which we wait immediately.
I report for you attention.
