After criticising the alternate history scenario so much, I feel obliged to suggest "something better".

Ok, RFC wanted a nice, no-Nazi Germany as a part of "Western Alliance", fighting against Soviet Russia in 1940s. Easy. Just let's kill Hitler earlier - during the "strange war". After the Poland Invasion, before the attacks on neutral countries. So, not much bad feeling between Germany and France/Britain. And Germany isn't too encouraged by the string of easy victories.

This would, of course, start infighting in German government. But at this moment, it would be pretty much localized, not affecting the overall Germany performance. And it would allow Britain and France to do the monumental stupidity: the "Operation Pike".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Pike

So, Britain and France bombed Baku. The results are far from expected. The Baku is not so easy to take out (we have nearly a THOUSAND fighters around by June 1940), and now they are in war with BOTH the Germany and Soviet Union. And they have no clue what to do next.

And then our good friend "kaiser" appeared on scene with anti-Nazi (at thus time, anti-Nazi leadership) military coup. By playing smartly, and disclosing the secret parts of Molotov-Ribbentrop protocols (with some, lets say, additions), he manages to persuade both German population AND the West, that the whole war around Poland is just a Hitler fault. And the real problem is Stalin, who fooled the stupid Hitler into believing him. So, Germany have nothing against West, lilttle against Poland, and eager to fight those dangerous Bolsheviks. He could even claim to be ready to restore Poland independence after the war - in such situation it would be plausible.

Even if Britain and Frnce would not believe "kaiser" much, they would have nowhere else to go. They could not just admit to their citizens that they started the war with USSR by mistake. So, they could go with German idea: claim that the war with Germany was all Hitler's stupidity and Stalin's plotting, and support - at least, formally - German Empire "crusade against Red Menace".

* Non-Nazi Germany - check.
* Gernan Empire restored - check.
* Western world unites against Soviet Union - check.
* The real probbility of taking the USSR out without demolishing all Europe in process - check.

Possible? Yes. Plausible? Yes.

P.S. I'm open to any criticism, of course. In fact, I would be very eager for it (because, of course, this scenario is NOT flawless)

Still nobody interested. A pity - I hoped for at least some discussion ;)
