Popov_Markian_Mikhailovich.jpg
My source, http://www.generals.dk/general/Popov/Ma ... Union.html,
gives this listing:

1942 - 1943 Commanding Officer 5th Tank Army
1943 Commander in Chief Popov Mobile Group of Forces
1943 Deputy Commander in Chief South-western Front
1943 Commander in Chief Reserve Front
1943 Commander in Chief Steppe Military District
1943 Commander in Chief Briansk Front
1943 Commander in Chief Baltic Front
1943 - 1944 Commander in Chief 2nd Baltic Front.

BTW, his Mobile Group was badly beaten by von Manstein because of the stubbornes of Stalin and Vatutin. 8O

So, its all Your's, Gustav!

Juha-Pekka :milwink:
Edit: P.S. Next hint would have been:
His family name is very common. There were at least 23 Soviet Generals in GPW with the same Surname.

Text of this peace treaty between two countries had official authorized and equivalent copies in 4 languages.
It is isolated case in history of diplomacy.
What peace treaty is it?

Hello!
Cease-fire agreement after Khalkhin-Gol conflict (15.09.1939)? In such case, languages would be Russian, Mongolian, Chinese and Japanese.

Best regards, Aleks
