ENEMY LOSSES IN NORTH MANCHURIA

Falling Back Rapidly N.Z.P.A.—Copyright.—Rec. 12.30 p.m. LONDON, August 12. The Japanese, rapidly falling back before the Red Array , * three-front assault, have already lost northern Manchuria from the strategic point of view, says Reuters Moscow correspondent. The Japanese in many areas are completely disorganised. They are withdrawing without a plan or are forming pockets of frantic resistance. Red Army troops to-day continued to fight their way forward into the depths of Manchuria, states a Russian communique. Troop* of the First Far Eastern Command in the Maritime Province, continuing the offensive in difficult mountain and wooded country, captured Mulingchan and Kunchung, occupied a number of inhabited places, and advanced between 9| and 22 miles. Troops of the Second Far Eastern Command, south-west of Khabarovsk, in conjunction with the Amur River flotilla, fought their way into a number of riverside localities on the south bank of the Amur River. Between the Rivers Ussuri and Sungari a number of localities have been captured. South-west of Blagovyeshehensk, Aigun and several other places have been taken. Troops of the Transbaikal Command are continuing the offensive along the rail line from Hailar to Harbin, and captured the railway town of Yakoshih and other places. Russian mobile forces in a number of sectors forced crossings of the Khangan Range and established themselves on the eastern slopes. Ship' landing parties from the Russian Pacific Fleet captured the north Korean ports of Yuki and Rashin. Ships and planes from the Pacific Fleet on Friday and yesterday struck against enemy shipping in north Korean ports and at sea, sinking two Japanese destroyers and 14 transports. Russian planes yesterday attacked enemy rail junctions in Manchuria.
