    "cadet Kirovets" what is it?

    The cadets of the Kirov Leningrad Infantry School as part of the Luga Task Force participated in the defense of Leningrad for a month - from July to August 1941. To hold a position during this not too long time in peacetime for young, 18-year-old soldiers was an almost impossible task.

    Probably cadets of any school named after. CM. Kirov by right can be called "Kirovtsy cadets". I studied at the Kiev VZRIU them. CM. Kirov, so there was even a school song, one of the lines "... Kirovtsy cadets are bolder in battle, we will overcome any barrier ...".
