POBEDA (Finnish Kanneljarvi before 1948), a settlement in Vyborg District. Population: 1900. Located on the shore of Lake Pobednoye (former Kanneljarvi, from the name of the musical instrument kantele, which the lake resembles in its shape.) Located at Kanneljarvi railway station on the St. Petersburg-Vyborg branch. Kanneljarvi village has been known since the 16th c. It belonged to Uusikirkko Volost (see Polyani), and became the center of a separate Kanneljarvi Volost in 1921. It was a popular dacha place at the break of the 19th-20th cc. There was a Higher School for Common People in Kanneljarvi from 1894 till 1939. A Lutheran church was opened in the rebuilt dacha building in 1923, and a new Lutheran church of St. Apostles Peter and Paul was erected in 1934 (arch. U. Uhlberg; the building has survived, although heavily damaged in the Soviet period.) The settlement got its today’s name in 1948 after the name of the local Soviet farm (currently Udarnik Poultry Farm Co.) In the early 1990s, Kanneljarvi parish of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Ingria was established. An independent Orthodox community was registered in 2002, the church of St. Benjamin the Martyr is under construction.
