Having shackled significant forces of the fascist troops throughout this time, Leningrad provided substantial assistance in the development of operations on all other sectors of the extensive front. By January 27, 1944, the troops of the Leningrad and Volkhov fronts broke the defenses of the 18th German Army, defeated its main forces and advanced 60 km in depth. Were freed from the enemy Krasnoe Selo, Pushkin, Pavlovsk. January 27 was the day of the complete liberation of Leningrad from the blockade.

The postage stamp depicts a bas-relief depicting a group of Soviet soldiers during the completion of the blockade of Leningrad.
