Order of the Day, addressed to Marshal Malinovsky, announces that on October 20, troops of the Second Ukrainian Front, continuing their offensive, as a result of an outflanking manoeuvre by cavalry and tank formations and in combination with a frontal attack, carried by storm the large industrial centre of Hungary, Debreczen - an important communications centre and powerful strongpoint of the enemy defence.

The Order mentions 70 commanders of cavalrymen, tankmen, troops, artillery, airmen,, sappers and signallers whose units and formations have distinguished themselves.

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