People walk Sunday to the Motherland monument to put flowers at the Piskaryovskoye Cemetery where most of the Leningrad siege victims were buried during World War II in St. Petersburg, Russia. People gathered to mark the 70th anniversary of the battle that lifted the siege. The Nazi German and Finnish blockade of Leningrad, now known as St. Petersburg, was broken on Jan. 18, 1943, but finally lifted Jan. 27, 1944. More than 1 million people perished during the 900-day siege.
