From the fellow forum:
342nd Rifle Division (II) was formed according to the GKO decree #6863 of 4.11.1944 in November 1944 in the Far East Front, in the Operational Army in 9.08-3.09.45, in the 87th Rifle Corps of the Far East Front.
The same information about the divisional commanders as Rodan quoted is given.

Strange enough, but according to the list of the GKO decrees
the decree # 6863 was entitled "On the assignment of the person subject to military service from Moldavian SSR and Izmail Oblast - Bulgarians, Greeks,Turks and also from Western Belorussia to the industry of Ural, Siberia and Far East"
So somebody is wrong here.
At least it's known for sure that the divsion didn't participate in any actions before August 1945.
