Speaking to senior military commanders, Adolf Hitler says that it will be necessary to eliminate the Russian leadership in order to defeat Russia.

According to Hitler:

"The intelligentsia installed by Stalin must be destroyed [vernichtet]. The leadership machine of the Russian empire must be defeated. In the Greater Russian area the use of the most brutal force is necessary."

The Nazis will move against communist and socialist leaders in much the same way that they will ultimately move against the Jews generally: by killing them in larger numbers on the belief that they represent a threat to western, Christian civilization.
