I am for 99% sure that he is General de brigadă Edgar Rădulescu, only that in this photo he wears no glasses.

This is Radulescu

I am somehow inclined to believe it may be Ioan Popescu:

It certainly looks to me more like Gen. Popescu.

I will post my question here, because I don't want to open a new topic.
Photo source is an Russian forum where I am active, I use the photo
with the owners consent.
The question is if someone can identify the General de Brigadă (first
from right) in the photo attached below. Location and time-frame - unknown.
Thanks!

The face isn't very familiar to me. He does have the MV Order. That should narrow it down a bit.

Yes, you are right, I consulted the excellent list Romanian officers decorated with "Mihai Viteazul" Order and after eliminating the known faces, the ones I could find photos of, and the ones decorated after 23 August 1944, I came up with the following list:

General de brigadă Arbore P. Ioan - Şeful statului major al Armatei 3: DR 1647/16.06.1943 - cl. III
General de brigadă Mihăescu D. Ioan - comandantul Diviziei 1 infanterie: DR 2549/1.09.1942 - cl. III
General de brigadă Niculescu Gheorghe - comandantul Diviziei 10 infanterie: DR 1071/30.05.1944 - cl. III (proprio motu)
General de brigadă Petculescu Atanase - comandantul secund al Diviziei 19 infanterie: DR 1071/30.05.1944 - cl. III
General de brigadă Popescu Cosma Marin - comandantul Diviziei 15 infanterie: DR3063/7.11.1941 - cl. III
General de brigadă Potopeanu Gheorghe - comandantul Diviziei de grăniceri: DR 3063/7.11.1941 - cl. III
General de brigadă Stavrescu C. Gheorghe - comandantul Diviziei 14 infanterie: DR 3063/7.11.1941 - cl. III
General de brigadă Stavrat Olimp - comandantul Diviziei 7 infanterie: DR3063/7.11.1941 - cl. III
General de brigadă ( r) Timus Traian - comandantul artileriei Corpului de Munte: DR 1071/30.05.1944 - cl. III (proprio motu)
General de brigadă Tudose Dumitru - comandantul Diviziei 2 infanterie: DR2549/1.09.1942 - cl. III
General de brigadă Vasiliu-Răscanu Constantin - comandantul Diviziei 1 munte: DR 2549/1.09.1942 - cl. III

From the above list, I found photos of General de brigadă Stavrescu C. Gheorghe http://ro.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gheorghe_Stavrescu and General de brigadă Vasiliu-Răscanu Constantin http://ro.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constantin_Va...C4%83%C8%99canu maybe you can help me with the photos of the remaining Generals.
Thank you!

He isn't Potopeanu or Stavrat either.

This narrows it down to:
General de brigadă Arbore P. Ioan - Şeful statului major al Armatei 3: DR 1647/16.06.1943 - cl. III
General de brigadă Mihăescu D. Ioan - comandantul Diviziei 1 infanterie: DR 2549/1.09.1942 - cl. III
General de brigadă Niculescu Gheorghe - comandantul Diviziei 10 infanterie: DR 1071/30.05.1944 - cl. III (proprio motu)
General de brigadă Petculescu Atanase - comandantul secund al Diviziei 19 infanterie: DR 1071/30.05.1944 - cl. III
General de brigadă Popescu Cosma Marin - comandantul Diviziei 15 infanterie: DR3063/7.11.1941 - cl. III
General de brigadă ( r) Timus Traian - comandantul artileriei Corpului de Munte: DR 1071/30.05.1944 - cl. III (proprio motu)
General de brigadă Tudose Dumitru - comandantul Diviziei 2 infanterie: DR2549/1.09.1942 - cl. III

Of course he could also be one of the generals that received the MV Order with a lower rank either in WW1 or WW2 and then he would not be in this list.

Did somebody have info about Brigadier General Petrescu, commander of 4th Infantry Division during Jassy-Khisinev battle? I can't find anything except some info about a Communist general with the same name. Thanks in advance.
