Near the Metro station Ozerki now there’s a new and unusual monument. It’s dedicated to the cats of the blockade Leningrad during the Great Patriotic World.

The opening of the monument was timed to the 73rd anniversary of the Victory Day, which was celebrated on 9th of May in Russia. 

On the plaque of the monument it’s written “In memory of the cats of the blockade Leningrad”. During all the 900 days of the siege it was them who saved the city from rats.
