Annotation: The victory over the Axis powers had virtually preserved Russia in world history. It was a great celebration not only of the armed forces, but also of ideas. The article widely uses Soviet and modern publications, by both Russian and foreign scientists, dedicated to the East Front of World War II. The criminal essence of Adolf Hitler’s personality, his personal traits, way of thinking is shown, the analysis of his statements, official speeches, private conversations, "table speeches", "Mein Kampf" is carried out. It also reconstructs the thinking process of other Nazi civil and military leaders who acted together with their Führer in pursuit of the common goal. The article for the first time, taking into account the logic of thinking of the leadership of the third Reich, traces literally by years that the war against the USSR was conceived as a total genocide and carefully worked out in all directions. The author concludes that the bloody and inhuman logic of the leadership of the German Reich, big entrepreneurs and bankers, members of the National Socialist German Workers' Party and the Schutzstaffel, generals and soldiers of the Wehrmacht, and a virtual legion of various officials clearly shows that they were all united in their desire to "stop Russian history".
Keywords: USSR, Germany, Adolf Hitler, Third Reich leadership, war, genocide, occupation, Wehrmacht, plans.
