At dawn, on June 22, 1941 Germany treacherously violating the Non-Aggression Pact suddenly, without declaration of war, brought destructive ordnances down the Soviet Union. Its aircraft made massive raids on airfields, railway nodes and groups of the Soviet forces in the border zone, as well as cities of Murmansk, Kaunas, Minsk, Kiev, Odessa, and Sebastopol. The enemy’s artillery fiercely bombed the border areas, deployment of advanced compounds and parts of the army border troops. Following the first air strikes and artillery preparation the Ground Army went on the offensive from the Baltic to the Carpathians. At the same time fighting further south of the Carpathians along the Romanian border to the Black Sea broke out. Hungary, Italy, Romania and Finland entered in the war against the Soviet Union together with Germany.
