12 September 1944
Signing of the Truce between Romania and the United Nations.
A delegation of the Romanian government signed the Truce Convention in Moscow with the Allied Forces, an act recognising the defeat of the Romanian army in the war against the Allies. At the same time, the Truce Convention imposed on Romania some heavy reparations, such as participation in the anti-Nazi war with at least twelve divisions and payment of large war reparations to the USSR. The application of the convention was to be monitored by an Allied (Soviet) Control Commission, which in fact coordinated the application of the Soviet model in Romania.
