And also German leadership and Hitler were not very interested in fighting against communism in 1941. This issue was not very important for them until 1943 when they were already in very bad situatiuon and started this campaign of creating so called front against communism and its penetration of Europe. Their interest at first was to create a Lebensraum with ethnic and racial cleansing and Germanization of the area of Poland, Baltic states, Ukraine, Belarus and west Russia. Even they declined open hands offered by some movements at that time to fight together against communism. Because this was not the main priority and it was even harmful for Nazi plans.
In later periord of war the goal of spreading communism by the advancing Red army and supporting local pro-Soviet guerilla forces in east and south east Europe was important for Moscow but at that particular time about which we are talking here it was not important because it was more a battle for survival.
