They won valuable time, which allowed the High Command to pull reserves from the depths of the country to protect the capital. The Podolsk cadets gave an opportunity to our troops to create a strong defense on the Nara river and to revive the Western Front.

…On the morning of October 5, 1941 – the day when the military alarm sounded and Podolsk conducted the cadets to the Ilyinsky line, – the enemy approached the south-western outskirts of Yukhnov. On Warsaw highway two columns of fascist tanks and armored cars quickly moved to the boundary of the river Ugra. Only 200 kilometers to Moscow remained – only a few hours drive…
