Nice banner: "Traiasca maresalul Stalin, genialul comandant al Armatei Rosii" (long live marshal Stalin, the brilliant commander of the Red Army) :lol:

Also, notice the raised fist type salute, typical to Communists and leftists.

Yeah, Denes, "Noi muncim, nu gândim", right... (We work, we don't think) That actually was a slogan in 1990! :(

:lol: Before watching the link to Patton, I really thought for a moment you were reffering to Pătrăşcanu! :lol:
My guess is that, somehow different from nowadays, back then, most of the people there really believed in those words! Today we're much too cynical - and the "mici şi bere" strategy is working!

Some authors state that this moment (of Soviet troops parading in Bucharest) was the oficial "beginning of the end" for Romania (the royalist state, non-popular, that is). The rest seems, from our p.o.v, at least, like a story whose final we know - Petru Groza, then Gh. Gh. Dej, then Ceauşescu and finally Iliescu ;)

Hey, I've just read in a book (written by Mr. Petre Otu) that the (in)famous "Tudor Vladimirescu Division" entered Bucharest on 31.08.1944! Is it a mistake? I knew nothing about that unit entering Bucharest until now...

From Rus.Wiki :
On August 31, 1944, the 2nd Ukrainian Front entered Bucharest and on 3 September, on american "Studebakers" also entered the Div.Tudor Vladimirescu. When they advanced through the streets of the city, the population happily rushes out to meet them with flowers.

Here you go.

Thanks, but that could be any Russian unit, AFAIK...
@Petre: thanks, as well; does the Russian wiki say which unit had the "privilege" to enter Bucharest first?

@MMM: That's the picture's caption. Anyway, they had the division's emblem on their uniforms.
