What were the closest non-Communist European countries to the Soviet Union?

Finland had a long history of trade and cordial diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union. After 1984, France, Austria, the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany), and Italy joined in. They began receiving natural gas from western Siberia through a pipeline, for which the Soviet Union was paid in hard currency.
