In 1941:

Winston Churchill Joseph Stalin sent a message which said the movement of German units in Poland, pointing to the preparation of an attack on the USSR. Together with this warning, the English Ambassador in Moscow, Stafford Cripps was sent instructions: "do Not take it for our desire to obtain the assistance of the Soviet government or the expectation that the Russians will act in someone's interests rather than their own. We just want them to understand that Adolf Hitler intends sooner or later to attack them if you will be able to do it...". On the morning of 5 April Cripps had informed Churchill that he could not deliver his message personally to Stalin: it is not allowed to see him since July 1940. Churchill agreed that the message was handed to Vyacheslav Molotov. In the end, due to the fact that Molotov evaded meeting with British Ambassador Cripps was able to pass it only on April 19, and the referee fell to Stalin until 21 April. But it didn't change anything: Stalin reacted to this information, to put it mildly, with mistrust.
