Soviet General.

Before World War Two, he fought in other wars like World War One and wars that the Soviet Union was involved with.

When World War Two broke out, he was in command of Soviet troops at the Battle of Bia³ystok–Minsk which was a Nazi victory.

General Pavlov and his Front Staff were soon executed by the NKVD because of cowardice and "failure to perform their duties".

Their bodies where buried in a landfill in Moscow.

Pavlov and other commanders of Western Front were exonerated as "lacking evidence" in 1956.
