Harsh Language

"To comrade Stalin

We send you a message from our agent, received by the USSR NKGB from Berlin.

People's Commissar of State Security, V. Merkulov."

Comrade Stalin, however, answered briefly, right on that page.

"Comrade Merkulov, you can go tell your "source" from the German aviation HQ to go fuck himself. This is not a source, this is disinformation.

I. Stalin"

Unfortunately, the date of the document, June 17th 1941, gives a pretty good hint as to what it was about and indicates that Stalin should perhaps not have dismissed it so quickly.
