Soviet forces entered into the former Kwantung Leased Territory shortly after the Japanese surrender of 18th August 1945 and postal services were suspended for six months. A limited service was resumed, in larger post offices only, on 18th March 1946.

The Sino-Soviet Treaty of August 1945 resulted in Port Arthur (Lushun) being used jointly as a naval base by China and the Soviet Union. Dairen (Dalian) was to be a free port, with half the installations leased to the Soviet Union. China was granted the civil administration of both places.
