It’s not for the first time when the question of burying Lenin was raised again in January on the eve of the Lenin’s death anniversary. He died on January 21, 1924, but was not buried according to his wish next to his mother in St. Petersburg. The body was embalmed in a special way to be shown to all wishing to take a look at the leader of October Revolution and Soviet Union founder.
The third and the last mausoleum was built in 1930 by A.Schusev. By the way, he built a lot of churches, including that one in Sts. Mary and Martha Convent of Mercy, I recently told you about.
What would you say if to ask you, would you like to be shown for 87 years after your death to everybody, who wants to look at you for curiosity or even respect?
