The military parade dedicated to the 70 anniversary of the liberation of the city from the Nazi blockade, was held at the Piskarevsky memorial cemetery in St. Petersburg. Here lie the 500 of thousands of Leningraders who died in a city completely surrounded by fascists.

To the sounds of the song "Get up, the country is huge" in front of the frozen on the Avenue Unsatisfied with ceremonial calculations they carried the flag of the Russian Federation and the Banner of Victory. The parade was attended by about 1,5 thousands of troops, representing all branches of the armed forces of Russia and about 100 units of military equipment.

Lieutenant-General Vladimir Dyatlov, deputy commander of the Western Military District (ZVO), commanded the parade. He was received by the commander of the ZVO troops, Colonel-General Anatoly Sidorov. The solemn event was attended by Speaker of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko, Presidential Plenipotentiary in the North-West Federal District Vladimir Bulavin, Governor of St. Petersburg Georgy Poltavchenko.

Along the stands with veterans, blockades and guests as part of the ceremonial calculations were soldiers in historical form of those years. Military equipment also took part in the parade. Together with military vehicles that are in service with the Russian army - the Grad, Pantsir-S, Iskander, tanks T-72B3, today the “veterans” of the Great Patriotic War - armored vehicles BA-3M and BA-20M and the legendary tank T-34 got into operation.

        Well, who is it, and veterans today are not well provided, other pensioners should not dream about such pensions. So Smirnov does not need to talk nonsense.

          My dad (the kingdom to him ...), according to a veteran’s certificate, like an all-terrain vehicle passed through any doors, there was a pension in my salary, letters came with all the holidays, once a year a privileged dispensary, etc. Old people did not complain, but in recent time, especially for veterans care was decent. I remember even in the hospital they put him briefly, so special. veteran chamber double with radio, telecom, refrigerator and cleanliness. Well, that's shorter.

        I read how in Vavilov's "library", where already then the seed fund from all over the world was collected - many tons of grain, tubers, etc., people were dying of hunger, but nothing was lost, everything was saved for the country and descendants. I think every civil servant, judge, physician, traffic cop should memorize this episode together with the oath they take ... If our officials were like those people, Germans and French would come here to work as janitors ...

      That's what they prepared for all of us.
      Hitler's directive No. 1601 of September 22, 1941, “The Future of the City of Petersburg” (German: Weisung Nr. Ia 1601/41 vom 22. September 1941, “Die Zukunft der Stadt Petersburg”) stated with certainty:

      “2. The Führer decided to wipe the city of Leningrad from the face of the earth. After the defeat of Soviet Russia, the continued existence of this largest settlement is of no interest ...
      4. It is supposed to surround the city with a tight ring and by shelling with artillery of all calibers and continuous bombing from the air to level it with the ground. If, as a result of the situation created in the city, requests for surrender are made, they will be rejected, since the problems associated with the stay of the population in the city and its food supply cannot and should not be solved by us. In this war, waged for the right to exist, we are not interested in preserving at least part of the population [38]. "
      According to Jodl during the Nuremberg trials,

      “During the siege of Leningrad, Field Marshal von Leeb, commander of the Army Group North, told OKW that the flows of civilian refugees from Leningrad were seeking refuge in the German trenches and that he had no opportunity to feed and take care of them. The Führer immediately gave the order (October 7, 1941 No. S.123) not to accept refugees and push them back into enemy territory [39]. "
      It should be noted that in the same order No. S.123 there was the following clarification:

      “... not a single German soldier should enter these cities [Moscow and Leningrad]. Whoever leaves the city against our lines must be driven back by fire.
      Small unguarded passages that make it possible for the population to go out one by one to evacuate to the internal regions of Russia should be welcomed. The population must be forced to flee the city with artillery shelling and aerial bombardment. The larger the urban population fleeing deep into Russia, the more chaos the enemy will have and the easier it will be for us to manage and use the occupied regions. All senior officers must be aware of this desire of the Fuhrer.

    Honor and glory to the heroes! When you read about what was happening and what was happening in Leningrad at that time, there are no words!

    I was not at the front, but I know
    As bullets above the ear whistle
    When saboteurs shoot
    In the guys watching them,
    How bullets tear a baby's body
    And blood beats with a scarlet geyser ...
    I would like to forget all this
    Yes, the aching scar does not.

    I was not at the front, but I know
    Burnt explosives fumes.
    Yurka and I ran to the tram,
    Suddenly a whistle and a blinding blow ...
    Deaf in a steaming jacket
    Who smashed his face on the panel
    I was still alive, but from Yurka
    There was only a briefcase left.

    I was not at the front, but I know
    The heavy soil of mass graves.
    He covering fallen friends
    And crushed our hearts.
    As the icy earth groans
    When ammonal charge
    preparing graves, I know
    We know with you, Leningrad.

      In St. Petersburg, they considered that the meaning of the word “lift” means the voluntary abandonment of the positions occupied by the troops: only the one who organized it can lift the blockade. But the German troops did not voluntarily abandon their positions and did not lift the blockade of the city - they were thrown back by force. "A change to the law" On the days of military glory and memorable dates of Russia "is proposed in connection with the appeals of the defense of Leningrad, which indicate that the law allowed gross an error, the explanatory note says. - The wording “Day of lifting the blockade”, according to the participants of the defense of the city, offends veterans, belittles the role of the Red Army. After all, in bloody battles, we ourselves liberated the city. ”Http://

    Yu. Voronov.
    "From letters to the mainland."
    Our city in the snow
    Buried to the waist.
    And if from the roofs
    To see the city
    That streets
    Looks like trenches
    I managed to visit

    The wagons at the empty stations are getting cold,
    And the dead locomotives are silent, -
    After all, semaphores
    They will not raise up their hands
    In all the ways
    Leading to Leningrad.

    Glides across the sky lonely
    Like a cheek
    Cold tear.

    And dark houses stand without windows,
    Like people
    Lost eyes.
    But in the fact that our city died, -
    Do not believe!
    We are not bent
    Despair and fear.

    We know
    From people hit by death
    What does it mean:
    Having corrected. " We know:
    Vows to speak are not easy.

    And if an enemy enters Leningrad,
    We will break:
    Last of the sheets
    Only bandages
    But not on the white flag!

      About the survey.

      The question is stupid and incompetent.

      Journalists forgot that Adolf Hitler never hid his attitude to Leningrad:

      "to tear down the city, to destroy, in its place - to make a lake."

      Probably, you don’t need to explain about the inhabitants, so that it would be with them if the city was commissioned.

    Yeah .... it's easier to organize a paradox ... to stick monuments ... continuous PR on the bones ... And the fact that those who broke through the blockade are still turning white with their bones except for enthusiasts, and even earlier not particularly worried. I remember watching an old program, from the 60s, it seems Irakli Andronnikov was leading, he had one railwayman, or rather a lineman, as a guest. He was assigned to a small station or a section near Myasny Bor, where the 2nd UA died. So he told how, from the beginning of the 50s, having received an appointment, he began to clear mines near the railway in his free time, where the sappers did not begin to clear mines (they cleared the area only along the tracks), he studied all types of mines, ours and German ones. As part of the TV show, he certainly did not give details, but what slipped was simply terrifying. Corpses, corpses, corpses ... where they are sprinkled in the funnel, and where they lie. In general, he connected his brother to this, then his brother died in an explosion on a mine, he himself was also blown up, was wounded. In his words, in a clean area, he buried soldiers, put a mark, read medallions, whenever possible wrote names on plywood, if possible looked for relatives ... He was a stern man. Since then, only enthusiasts have been looking for the dead, this is a different country, but the attitude towards the dead has not changed, the state still does not need them. It is easier to make a frown face in front of the cameras, to say, "no one is forgotten, nothing is forgotten," saying, "no one is forgotten, nothing is forgotten," to spend the next millions on memorials, parades ...
    This is excavation in 2013. in Myasnoy Bor, photo by Dmitry Chistoprudov, thank you very much ...

    BLOCKADE OF LENINGRAD, one of the worst episodes of the Second World War.
    Even against the backdrop of the catastrophic losses of 1941.
    Because in the blockade, mostly civilians suffered and died: the elderly, children, women. The peaceful population of Leningrad.
