Here it is Vietnamese people commented on the event "Japanese fascists surrendered unconditionally":

On August 14, 1945, the Japanese fascists surrendered unconditionally, ending World War II
Faced with strong onslaught of allied forces, led by the Soviet Red Army on the Korean, Mongolian, Chinese and American fronts on the Pacific, on August 14, 1945, Japan Huang had to declare unconditional surrender to Allied countries. This event officially ended World War II.
When the Pacific War broke out, due to its signing with Japan the "Neutral Treaty" (April 13, 1941), the Soviet Union stood outside the war. At the Ianta Conference, at the request of the United States, Britain, the Soviet Union agreed to join the war against Japan three months after the end of the war in Europe.

On August 8, 1945, the Soviet Union declared war on Japan. On the morning of August 9, 1945, the Soviet Red Army, with a force of 1.5 million troops (3 fronts), 5500 tanks, 3900 aircraft, 2600 manure and Pacific troops, launched the attack. storming into the Japanese army of Dongguan (including 70,000 Japanese main forces and more than 30,000 puppet troops of "Manchurian Kingdom", Inner Mongolia, Tuy Vien ...) spread out on a battle line spanning more than 4500 km from North Korea, East - North China to South Xakhalin Island and Curin Islands with very difficult transportation and transportation.

Before the Soviet Union invaded Japan, on August 6, the US dropped atomic bombs on Hirosima and on August 9, the second atomic bomb was dropped on Nagadaki, destroying these two cities and killing tens of thousands. innocent civilians (according to Japanese statistics, the number of deaths in Hirosima is 247,000 people and Nagadaki - 200,000 people, not including those who become infected with radiation later).

At 3:00 am on August 10, the Government of Japan sent the United States, Britain, China and the Soviet Union a proposal to accept surrender under the Pyam Statement (published on July 26, 1945, calling for Japan to surrender. but Japan refused). The Soviet Union, the United States, Britain, and China forced Japan to unconditional surrender.

On August 14, 1945, the Emperor announced on the radio that he would accept unconditional surrender to Allied countries. Nevertheless, the Guan Dong army headquarters refused to surrender, continuing to fight fiercely with the Soviet army. On August 18, the Red Army landed on the Curin Islands and on August 20, captured major cities in Northeast China (Harbin, Jilin, Changchun); August 23, taking over Dalian and Lu Shun. On August 19, the army commander Guan Dong accepted to surrender. But in some places, the Soviet army still had to fight for about two weeks to completely defeat the enemy (killing 8,000 troops, capturing 60,000 Japanese prisoners, including the commander of Quan Dong army). and 148 other generals).

Although on August 14, 1945, the Emperor announced on the radio to accept unconditional surrender to Allied countries, but until September 2, 1945, the Japanese surrender ceremony to the troops. New allies were made on the USS Missouri (BB-63) battleship. There, Japanese Foreign Minister Mamoru Shigemitsu, on behalf of Japanese government officials, signed the acceptance of surrender before the supervision of US General Richard K. Sutherland representing Allied forces, officially ending. Second world war.

It can be said that the defeat of Japanese militarism was the result of a process of fighting for many years by the Allied countries and the people of the countries dominated by Japan, and forcing Japan to surrender unconditionally. August 14, 1945 is due to the following factors:

- The collapse of Nazi Germany and ltalia in Europe caused Japan to lose its support and put Japan in despair.

- Failure on the Pacific Islands, in Southeast Asia; heavy naval and air losses in naval battles with the United States; the continuing bombardment of the US Air Force lasted many months into 70 major Japanese cities (including the capital Tokyo); the US occupation of Okinaoa Island, the gateway to Japan; 2 atomic bombs that destroyed the cities of Hirosima and Nagadaki, though a savage crime, they also caused psychological panic and depressed the morale of the Japanese authorities.

- The Soviet Union's engagement in the Far East and sortie with a very powerful force placed Japan in a completely inevitable defeat.

- In China, the People's Liberation Army has turned to a total counter-attack and in many other Southeast Asian countries, the anti-Japanese movement is boiling (Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Burma).

- The pressure of the Japanese people and the pressure of the "commodity owner" within the Japanese authorities.

So, after making a peace pact with Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union did the same with fascist Japan. It took no action against Japan until after USA dropped nuclear bombs and made clear that Japan would have to surrender; it was then that the Soviet Union decided it could gain some glory by invading China and scoring a victory against the Japanese forces that remained there.

OK, great. A very good finding, maybe that is normal for you but for me, your judgment is completely untapped.

Transfering armies to the other side of the country was a bit more complex for the Soviet Union than for most other countries. Even today, going from Moscow to Murmansk isn't a picnic.

The agreement between the Allies was that the USSR would enter the war against Japan once the Third Reich was defeated. The Soviets started to transfer their troops, tanks, armies etc from Europe to the Far East (the distance around ten thousand kilometers) in May 1945 and were in position for the Manchurian Operation in the end of July 1945. The USSR declaration of war on Japan, the timing of the attack had been planned well in advance in accordance with the agreements at Tehran and Yalta.

Don't give the Soviets too much credit for the defeat of Japan; Manchuria was a sideshow. It was the United States that destroyed Japanese sea, air and economic power, bombarded and blockaded Japan and, oh yeah, dropped the atomic bombs that forced the Japanese to throw in the towel.

If I'm not mistaken, Soviets always held huge forces in the Far East ( from Russian book I have read, even in critical moments of 1941, there were more than 1000000 Soviet soldiers near Manchuria.
