Order of the Day, addressed to Marshal Koniev, announces that troops of the First Ukrainian Front, having forced the River San, broke through the enemy defences and, as a result of an outflanking manoeuvre by tank formations, cavalry and infantry, captured the town and fortress of Peremyshl and the town of Yaroslav, important nodal points of communications and powerful strongpoints of the German defences covering the roads to Cracow.

The Order mentions 52 commanders of tankmen, cavalrymen, troops, artillerymen, airmen, sappers and signallers whose units and formations have distinguished themselves.

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