Order of the Day, addressed to Army-General Rokossovsky, announces that troops of the First Byelorussian Front, developing a vigorous offensive on June 28, as a result of a deep outflanking manoeuvre, captured the town and important railway junction of Ossipovichi, so completing the encirclement of the Bobruisk group of German troops.

The Order mentions 7 commanders of troops, tankmen and airmen whose units and formations have distinguished themselves.

A salute of 20 salvoes was fired by 224 Moscow guns.
