Order of the Day, addressed to Army-General Malinovsky, announces that, on August 23, troops of the Second Ukrainian Front, as a result of a swift blow by tank and infantry formations, captured the town of Vaslui - an important communications centre and strongpoint of the enemy defences between the Rivers Sereth and Pruth.

The Order mentions 18 commanders of tankmen, troops, artillerymen and airmen whose units and formations have distinguished them-fselves.

A salute of 12 salvoes was fired from 124 Moscow guns.
