WWII Soviet Red Army RKKA & Russian Air Force VVS - Attack ! (00:01:14m)For the past four days Soviet artillery and Soviet Red Air Force have been bombarding the city of Warsaw. The battle in Praga ended today with the complete elimination of German troops from that bank of the Vistula. Polish forces of the Tadeusz Kosciuszko First Division took part in the attacks. Meanwhile In Czerniakow, Lieutenant Colonel 'Radoslaw' has concentrated his units closer to the Vistula to secure the area, thereby allowing the Soviet Army to set up a beachhead. In Southern City Centre, efforts by Polish insurgents to recapture St. Lazarus Hospital have stopped.

The Warsaw Council of National Unity which represents the opinions of the populace and its civilian administration has strongly recommended that Warsaw must capitulate. However, military leaders refuse to comply believing that diplomatic efforts to rally the Soviet Union to their assistance will soon materialize. But there is the underlying fear that if Warsaw surrenders, civilians and insurgents alike will be completely annihilated. They say that the fighting must continue. On August 6, 1944 the Chief Government Delegate Jan Stanislaw Jankowski, and Chairman of the Council of National Unity,Kazimierz Puzak dispatched this radio transmission to the Prime Minister of the Government-in-Exile, Stanislaw Mikolajczyk. The message describes the progress of the Uprising and calls on allies to supply the Home Army with immediate aid. Since the start of the Uprising messages of this kind had been frequently dispatched to London. However very few air drops have been made by the allies, the majority of containers landing in enemy hands.
