At 2:10 p.m. on May 9, 1945 Leningrad citizens received the joyful news about the end of the Great Patriotic War

«On that day you could see lights in every home switch on one by one, hear windows open and people cheerfully screaming "hurrah" on every corner. The citizens just could not keep from sharing their happiness at those moments. They would call their neighbours and get out on the streets,» — the «Leningradskaya Pravda» newspaper wrote.
