when was this photo of Stalin taken ?

There are two versions of caption on this photo:
one of them says "an unauthorized photo taken of Stalin inside of the Kremlin shows the very moment he was informed that Germany had began their invasion of the Soviet Union. "
Yet the other says "An unauthorized photo of Stalin: the moment he was informed that the Germans were about to take Kiev, 1941".

Anybody knows which one is correct ? Thanks pal! :D

Apparently when Germany began their invasion of the Soviet Union, Stalin was sleeping in his dacha, so he was not in the Kremlin.
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.
