Comments

The year 1945 was the last year of the hard-fought battles against the Fascist Germany. Pushing to Berlin, the Soviet Army liberated Warsaw, Budapest, Koenigsberg, Vienna and Prague. The war in Europe ended on May 8 when representatives of the Allied Supreme Commands signed the instrument of unconditional capitulation of Fascism Germany. On August 9 the Soviet Union entered into the war against Japan, concentrating its war effort on the regions of the Far East where the principal Japanese ground forces, the Kwangtung army, were deployed. Its defeat forced Japan to surrender unconditionally. The instrument of capitulation was signed by representatives of the Soviet Union, the United States, Great Britain and Japan aboard the US battleship "Missouri" on September 2, 1945.
