”Vidlitsa disaster”

Landing at Vidlitsa

On June 27, 1919 the Bolshevik's flotilla landed the troops in Vidlitsa, on the coast of Ladoga Lake, in the rear of Olonets Volunteer Army.

As wrote later Paavo Talvela: “It was at this time, at the end of June, when the capture of Petrozavodsk was only a matter of few days, happen a Vidlitsa disaster.”
