Soviet-Japanese War of 1945
The year of 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the war between the USSR and Japan, which completed a major conflict of the 20th century - the World War II. In accordance with the agreements reached at the Yalta Conference, the Soviet Union entered the war against Japan in August 1945, three months after the end of hostilities in Europe. In less than a month, the Japanese Kwantung Army located in Manchuria was defeated by decisive blows of the Soviet troops under the command of A. Vasilevsky, R. Malinovsky and K. Meretskov. This victory hastened the defeat of Japan and the end of World War II, which ended with the signing of the Instrument of Surrender of Japan on September 2, 1945.
