Move aside!


Make room for Army vehicles!

Out of the way! Now!

Where are you going with your cow?

I sent it away!

Out of the way! Now!

Watch or be violated!

Where are going? Get away!

Go, go, go.

Hey! Let the vehicle pass!

Stop the truck.

Watch the car!

Get away! Army Vehicles.


Come on, hurry!



Go, go, do not stop.

Without violence. Go, go, go.

Do silence. Come on.

Speech Petchora 6.


Lieutenant Gorkin?

Sergeant Tsvetkova.

I brought new orders.

They out of men?

They're sending girls now?

The messenger was killed.

I took his job.

You don't even bother to read it?

I heard. "No retreat".

Shoot anyone who does.

Don't try to scare anyone, kid.

Just get me reinforcements.

Your new company, sir.


More down.


Go, go, go!


Stick them up your ass.

I asked for soldiers,

not profs and students.

Lieutenant, did you hear me?

Receive the company and attack!

Shut your mouth, you snot-nose brat!

I have my orders too, Lieutenant.

And if you think

I will not obey them...

Comrades Militiamen!

If you don't have a weapon...

take one from the dead.

Or pick one up on the battlefield.

Alright, guys...


Attack, Lieutenant!

Still here?

Go home. Save yourself.

No use staying here.

With me! Advance!

Where are you going? Attack!

More down.

Where you going? Go back, go!

I said go!

Tsvetkova, what are you doing?

No more retreating! Enough!

For the Motherland!

For Stalin!

For Leningrad!

Stop, you are not allowed!

You know, it is not allowed!

They're retreating!

Keep the posts.

F*** you!

I am disappointed,

very disappointed, Von Leeb.

You promised to take

Leningrad in July.

Then August. It's now

the end of September.

The city is completely

surrounded, my Fuhrer.

But not taken!

I am moving the point

of attack to Moscow.

I'm giving Von Bok the first

and sixth tank divisions...

My division...

Goopner's group,

Reinhardt's corps...

the 36th Motorized Division

and Mahnstein's tanks.

This morning

I appointed Zigelmeyer...

deputy superintendent of the army.

Formerly, he was...

Director of the Munich Food

and Nutrition Institute, my Fuhrer.

According to the Laws

of energy conservation...

in order for the organs

of the body to function...

they must receive fuel energy.

Our body is like

any engine, gentlemen.

In physiology this fuel

is calculated in calories.

to sustain life.

Listen, Von Leeb!

Von Leeb, guess what's going

to smash Leningrad instead of you?

According to the

latest intelligence...

the daily ration in Leningrad...

is down to 300 grams of bread a day.

That's 500 calories.

The Fritzes!

They're digging in!

We've stopped them!

We've stopped them!




A fine diet, indeed.

Total extinction when?

If our troops maintain the siege...


Three months maximum.

Two million people

will die of starvation...

until January 1942.

This is 2/3 of the population

of Leningrad, my Fuhrer.

Leningrad is blocked

by German troops, comma.

The Russian army has no forces...

to combat the stranglehold the city.

Supplies of food will be cut. Point.

Only a narrow corridor,

by Lake Ladoga...

is still controlled

by Russian troops.

The situation is more

precarious every day.

Food comes to town

by Lake Ladoga...

but little and does not cover

the needs of the population.

Next paragraph. Hospitals begin...

Besides the exchange of

fire in bombing and air...

the storms of October

begin to reach Ladoga.

Only one of 20 boats
