Order of the Day, addressed to Army-General Maslennikov, announces that, on August 25, troops of the Third Baltic Front, continuing their offensive, carried by storm the town and large communications centre of Tartu (Yuryev Derpt), important strongpoint in the German defences covering the roads to the central area of Esthonia.

The Order mentions 53 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.
