I don't know whether quizmaster would describe the many US invasions of the past century as being "with hostile intent" but surely they were!
In 1945 the Soviet Union occupied Eastern Europe. The situation was so brutal and depressing that they had to kill people who tried to flee to the west.
A simple list of countries invaded is a shallow and ultimately pointless method of comparing the effects of two countries on the world stage.
The red army occupied the capital and other territories in 1945 and they left only in 1955. Austria is neutral since than, not NATO member.
There are books about that:
Yugoslavia is more questionable, but still:
In the early October 1944 three Bulgarian armies, consisting of around 340,000-man, together with the Red Army reentered occupied Yugoslavia and moved from Sofia to Niš, Skopje and Pristina to blocking the German forces withdrawing from Greece. The Red Army organised the Belgrade Offensive, and took the city on 20 October.
Can someone explain the final caveat for me pls:
Only countries that were not sovereign at the time, so Austria doesn't count
Hulkamania running wild, am I right?
I think Bornholm should count as the Soviets continued occupying it until mid-1946 so it can't really be called a liberation.
