The Russian action reopening the allied route to' Berlin came after a scries of soviet blows apparently designed to force the'Western powers clear out of the German capital. The Russian moves had seemed near to achieving that end Tile Russian decision to permit resumption of rail and road traffic from the Western zones of Berlin would lift the threat of starvation from Gome 2,500,000 Germans in sectors of the capital which are under American, British and French control. It also would relieve any Immediate pressure on the Western allies to withdraw their military and civil establishments—totalling some 30,000 persons—from Berlin.
