Order of the Day, addressed to Marshal Koniev, announces that on July 27, as a result of an outflanking manoeuvre in combination with a frontal attack, troops of the First Ukrainian Front captured the regional centre of the Ukraine, the town of Stanislav, a large railway junction and important German stronghold in the foothills of the Carpathians.

The Order mentions 42 commanders of troops, artillerymen, tankmen, airmen, sappers and signallers whose units and formations have distinguished themselves.

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