The feat of the Podolsk cadets

On April 13, the feature film «Podolsk Cadets», which was released in Russian cinemas in November 2020, was shown at the University. In the same year, he won the Best Film nomination at the Yu.N. Ozerov International War Film Festival. The cadets of the Navigation Faculty took part in the viewing. «Podolsk cadets» is a historical feature film about the feat of the Podolsk cadets during the defense of Moscow in the fall of 1941. Dying, yesterday's boys held the defense against the many times greater forces of the Germans and for twelve days became an obstacle on the enemy's path to Moscow. The legendary hockey player Vyacheslav Fetisov said: «A film about them is a very significant project that should turn the minds of young people, show what nation they belong to». Historical consultants tried to achieve maximum reliability of what was shown, up to the reconstruction of the numbers of tanks and aircraft. While watching the film on the eve of the next anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War, the cadets of the Maritime University were able to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of those terrible years and try on the fate of the Podolsk cadets, their peers. At the end of the film, the guys honored their memory with a minute of silence.
