RUSSIANS CONTINUE MANCHURIA PUSH

Landings On Karafuto N.Z.P.A.—Copyright.—Rec. noon. LONDON, August 13. A Russian communique reports that troops of the Second Far Eastern Command in Manchuria to-day advanced from 10 to 30 miles and captured the towns and railway stations of Hulin and Shoybuldzy and the railway junction of Denifou. The Red Army continued its offensive between the Rivers Sungari and Ussuri and advanced 15 to 25 miles. They occupied Haimu. Troops of the Transbaikal Command captured Halun and Arzhan and forced passes across the Khingan mountain range. They captured the railway stations of Sholun and Zamhnao, and also advanced along the Khailar-Harbin railway, occupying Manduke. _

The Russian armies in Manchuria are now well into the interior from three sides. Reuters correspondent in Moscow says the Japanese, rapidly falling back before the Red Army's threefront assault, have already lost Northern Manchuria from the strategic point of view. The Japanese in many areas are completely disorganised. They are withdrawing without a plan, or else forming pockets of frantic resistance. Tokyo radio says that seaborne Russians have begun landings on Karafuto, the Japanese territory on Sakhalin, at Anabetsu, near the border, and at Esutoro, 60 miles south of the border. Tokyo radio announced that the Russians were 20 miles into Karafuto in the land invasion across the border. _ Japanese submarines sank a large seaplane tender off Okinawa yesterday. .
