Bolshevik Birthday Bash


From Novosti

MOSCOW, April 22 About 2,000 people gathered at Vladimir Lenin’s mausoleum Sunday morning to mark the anniversary of the Bolshevik leader’s birth.

Supporters and members of the Communist Party of Russia placed wreaths and flowers at the mausoleum on Red Square, where Lenin’s embalmed body has been on display since his death in 1924 at the age of 53.

The mausoleum’s continuing presence in the heart of Moscow has been a source of considerable controversy since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. There have been many calls for the Lenin’s body to be removed and buried, but Communist Party members and others have fiercely resisted the idea.
