Rec. 2 p.m. LONDON, Aug. 8
"We in Great Britain fully appreciated and understood the tremendous sacrifice and strain imposed on Russia by her heroic campaign against Nazi German? and we always had confidence that as soon as victory was won in the West Russia would take her stand with her Allies against the enemy on the Eastern Front," «jid the Prime Minister of Britain, Mr. Attlee, in a statement issued from Mo. 1 0, Downing Street, to-day.
"Germany's unconditional sur- | render has now made possible! the deployment of Soviet forces ; against the last of the aggressors. j "The declaration of war made j to-day by the U.S.S.R. against Japan is proof of the solidarity existing between the principal Allies, and should shorten the struggle to establish conditions which will allow general peace to be brought about. We welcome this great decision of Soviet Rusria."
