STALIN APPEASES HITLER

Artusov and the other members of his staff at the Lubianka offices of the Foreign Division of the Ogpu. It was on the eve of Levanevsky's take-off on his famous first flight across the North Pole from Moscow to San Francisco. We were all waiting for a car to take us to see Levanovsky and his two companions start for America. While we were waiting and locking up papers in the safes, the subject of our relations with the Nazi regime came up. Artusov produced a highly confidential report just received from one of our leading agents in Berlin. It was prepared in answer to the question worrying Stalin : What and how strong are the forces in Germany favouring an accord with the Soviet Union?
After an exceptionally interesting review of the internal economic and political conditions in Germany, of the elements of possible discontent, of Berlin's relations with France and other powers, and of the dominant influences surrounding Hitler, our correspondent arrived at this conclusion:
" All the. Soviet attempts to appease and conciliate Hitler arAoomed. The main obstacle to an understanding with Moscow is Hitler himself."
The report made a profound impression upon all of us. Its logic and facts seemed unanswerable. We wondered how the "big boss" took it. Artusov remarked that Stalin's optimism concerning Germany remained unshaken.
" Do you know what the boss said at the last meeting of the Politbureau?" Artusov observed with a wave of the hand. And he quoted Stalin :
" Well, now, how can Hitler make war on us when he has granted us such loans? It's impossible. The business circles in Germany are too powerful, and they are in the saddle."
