Note that there were approximately 130.000 Romanian soldiers taken POWs by the Red Army after 23 August 1944, when practically Romania and the Soviet Union were not at war anymore. They were not released after 12 September, when the armistice has been signed, as it would have been normal, but only several years after. This probably happened because a stronger Romanian Royal Army wasn't included in the aims of the Soviet leadership, as seen in the following years, when the Royal army was practically destroyed, in order to be replaced with a new People's Army.
