THE TIMES SATURDAY FEBRUARY 6 1943

CIANO GOES

DUCE AS FOREIGN MINISTER

GRANDI LOSES HIS MINISTRY

Mussolini has dismissed Count Ciano, the Italian Foreign Minister, and taken over the post himself.

MR. CHURCHILL IN TRIPOLI

THANKS TO EIGHTH ARMY

REVIEW OF TANKS

CAIRO, Feb. 5. – Mr Churchill visited Tripoli by air on Wednesday and thanked the Eighth Army for their achievements, it was announced here to-night.

THE TIMES MONDAY FEBRUARY 15 1943

ROSTOV CAPTURED

VOROSHILOVGRAD ALSO IN RUSSIAN HANDS

RING CLOSING ON KHARKOV

RAPID THRUSTS INTO THE DONETZ BASIN

The capture of Rostov was officially announced by the Russians last night. The city was taken after violent fighting, and the main assault groups were greatly assisted by an outflanking movement from the west.

The fall of Voroshilovgrad and Krasny Sulin, which was also announced in the special report, worsened the position of the enemy in the Donetz Basin. The Germans had already suffered a heavy blow after a daring thrust from Kramatorskaya had reached Krasnoarmeisk, where the Russians cut an important trunk line to the west.

Soviet forces are closing in rapidly on Kharkov, and their recent successes have placed them in an unbroken arc round the city. Only the railway line to the west through Poltava lies open to the Kharkov garrison.
