In June 1944 the Russians again attacked Finland, which was assisted by Germany to defend herself. Russia failed again and peace was agreed on condition that Finland expel the German troops from Lapland, which they duly did. Bulgaria aligned itself with the Axis powers and occupied parts of Greece and Yugoslavia, until in 1944 it was invaded by Russia. This enabled the Bulgarian Communists to seize power, and they turned the Bulgarian forces against Germany.
