The Capital of Lithuania, Vilnius is Liberated!, TASS No. 1022, August 15, 1944
1725 x 856 mm
Vilnius is ours! Majestic volleys
Speak of this to us today in Moscow.
The Soviet flag is solemnly raised
Over the free capital of Lithuania!
The hour has struck! The hated yoke
Will soon by cast off by the Lithuanian people.
We are coming! Tallinn and Riga can hear
The rapid approach of our tanks.
