What can you tell us about Stalin's offer for peace during Barbarossa?

A few days after Hitler broke his alliance with Stalin and invaded the Soviet Union, the Soviet dictator used a diplomatic back channel to explore whether the Nazi leader would be prepared to end the war if Stalin agreed to hand over to German rule Ukraine, the Baltic republics and perhaps even more.

Was this ever seriously considered by Germany? May this have led to a second Brest-Litovsk Treaty?

Thank you very much for your great work! I’ve been watching Indy since the Great War Channel began in 2014.
