This document is a typewritten copy of a commentary that reflects the Soviet Government's animosity toward the Nazi leadership, whom it holds responsible for the depredations of the German military. The commentary affirms the justice of prosecuting alleged war criminals and of punishing the guilty, and is concerned generally with demonstrating Soviet Russia's support of these objectives. The reverse side of this document bears a typewritten copy of a fragment, also from TASS, extolling the virtues of the Soviet economic system in recovering from the ravages of war. The latter transcription has been taken from a broadcast in English Morse Code to North America, 30 August 1945. The paper is brown and extremely fragile.
