Leningrad Blockade Monument


The monument to the blockade of Leningrad was opened in 2012 in Bishkek, on the eve of the Victory Day. The memorial is dedicated to the residents of Leningrad who felt all the horror of the blockade.

The monument is a tall black marble stone with a figure of a woman and a baby in her arms. The figures are made in white marble. There is a capsule under the base of the statue with soil from the Piskarevsky cemetery in St. Petersburg, the mass grave of those who didn't survive the siege.
