The study deals with the military measures of the General Staff of the Red Army, carried out in connection with the events that occurred in 1938 as a result of German demands for the surrender of the border areas of Czechoslovakia. It characterizes their content and scope in preparation for fulfilling the obligations of the Soviet Union, which resulted from the agreement on mutual assistance between the Czechoslovak Republic and the USSR of 16 May 1938 in the event that the Czechoslovak Republic becomes the object of attack by Germany. Points out that the measures relating to the deployment of part of the Red Army troops to combat readiness and their deployment to the western borders into the boarding areas to the north and south of Polesia, planned from March 1938 in the event of war with Germany and its closest ally Poland, the Soviet Union demonstrated its determination to provide assistance to Czechoslovakia in a coalition with France. The last regulation resulting from the need to strengthen the troops on alert in connection with the Munich crisis was issued by the People‘s Commissar of Defense of the USSR on September 29, 1938, the day the conference of the four European powers began in Munich. The next day, September 30, the Czechoslovak government accepted the Munich dictatorship.
