Stalin resigned as minister of armed forces In chnrge of Soviet defense and,Hie post was assumed by 'his deputy, Army General Nikolai Bulgnnln; a fast rising star on the Soviet scene. Stalin's resignation wns not '.nken as nn indication of any )cssenb5[r of Ills influence in Russia but rather 'as confirmation of the prediction made repeatedly by Russian observers tlutt once the war was over ,the immediate post-war era had passed Stalin would divest himself of ,a multitude of the formal offices which lie,.assumed at the start of the Riisso-Ccrmnu war in June 1841.

With the attack on Russia, however, he assumed the premiership from V. M. -Molotov and took over the defense comissariat as it was called at that time. It was believed possible thf.t Stniin «iviit the military role at ihls time in order to demonstrate dramatically on the eve of the Moscow con- feiencc his belief that Russia will be moie concerned in the era ahead with peaceful rather than military tasks • Many Changes Made 'His resignation from the armed forces post is one of a whole wles of stilfls in Soviet top ranking personnel which has been announced iconcuirent .with the present meeting of the Supreme Soviet, the Rus:Sian" parliament. -Half a dozen ministers have b»er removed from oflice and many dep- W\> ministers have been changed Andrei A.
