"Returned" marking

This cover has been sent 17.5.1943 from besieged Leningrad to an FPO and returned to sender. Black rectangular marking says "Returned because of..." ("Возвращается за...") and then becomes unreadable. Does anyone know what the rest of the marking says?

"Возвращается за выбытием адресата" - "Returned because the departure of recipient."
