Cipher telegram from Joseph Stalin to Soviet plenipotentiary representative in the United Kingdom Ivan Maisky on Winston Churchill’s failure to fulfil his duties as an ally

19 October 1942
Archive of Foreign Policy of the Russian Federation

"All of us in Moscow have the impression that Churchill is interested in the destruction of the USSR in order to conclude a pact with Hitler's or Bruning's Germany at our country's expense. Otherwise, it would be difficult to explain Churchill's stance on the second front in Europe, on deliveries of arms to the USSR that keep diminishing despite the growing production in England. and, finally, on the systematic bombing of Berlin by the British that Churchill promised during his stay in Moscow and that he did not fulfil at all, although he was certainly able to do so."
