We congratulate you on the day of the complete liberation of Leningrad from the Nazi blockade!
On January 27, we celebrate the Day of the complete liberation of Leningrad from the Nazi blockade.
The siege of Leningrad is one of the most tragic pages in the history of the Great Patriotic War. The city spent 872 days under siege - on September 8, 1941, Leningrad was surrounded, and the blockade ring was removed only on January 27, 1944.
The inhabitants and defenders of the city suffered severe ordeals - brutal bombing and shelling, agonizing hunger and the cold of the first blockade winter, the death of relatives and friends, but, in spite of everything, Leningrad continued to live. Hospitals, schools, libraries, theaters operated; to hasten the victory of our troops, the inhabitants of the city were ready to give up the last. Every day hundreds of people came to the hospitals of besieged Leningrad to donate blood for the wounded. Most donors donated monetary compensation to the defense fund - several planes and tanks were built with this money. All Leningraders - young and old - defended their native city, and Leningrad survived.
Low bow to all our veterans, home front workers, children of war and soldiers-liberators.
We wish you all good health, long life, a peaceful sky over your head and prosperity!
