The invaders in every possible way suppressed the Moldavian national culture: the opera and drama theaters were barbarously destroyed, most of the schools were closed. The population of the city, which reached 300 thousand under the Soviet regime, fell ten times during the Romanian occupation.

Over 140 Soviet soldiers and commanders were awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union for participating in the battles for the liberation of Moldova.

After completing the liberation of Moldova and reaching the Soviet-Romanian border along the Prut River, Soviet troops set off on a victorious march through Europe, already on August 31, having captured the capital of Romania - the city of Bucharest.
