Women on the Roofs of Leningrad


On March 6, 1942 all male soldiers of the Leningrad anti-aircraft defence went to serve to the front. In the anti-aicraft defence they were replaced by 16,5 thousand women. In spring 1942, there were recruited Leningrad women aged from 18 to 35 who formed 80% of military personnel. The city went under the defence of the female army consisting of 35 squadrons.


They took on all the tasks of Leningrad. The women removed wreckage, buried the dead, gave out medicines, prepared firewood, fixed utility systems. They helped in all situations.

  1. Those were the days …
    when the Russian people stood tall.
    But now, all the strong ones have left .. to Finland, Sweden, Ukraine.
    Now, all that is left are the yoked ones, subservient to their corrupt,
    warmongers masters.
    Pushed in war with their cousins, brothers, sisters, sheeplike.
    Obliterating Ukrainian cities with their machines.

    Your name will be used to scare children for centuries. Your people will be truly the wolves of the steppe.
