Movie: “Life Goes On”- First Hand Accounts From “Mikhail Zorin” and His service at “Nevsky Petechok”

“Nevsky Outlet” – was the symbol of a bridgehead on the left (east) bank of the Neva River opposite the Nevskaya Dubrovka held by Soviet troops of the Leningrad Front
From this bridgehead, Soviet troops repeatedly tried to launch an offensive on Msu and Sinyavino towards the troops that were striking from the east, and thereby break through the blockade of Leningrad. Despite the fact that all attempts to expand the bridgehead and develop the offensive ended in failure, the Nevsky Piglet became one of the symbols of courage, heroism and self-sacrifice of Soviet soldiers.
