Not much left of Lenin: As a reporter for the Russian newspaper Moskovsky Komsomolets (MK) reported after a recent visit to the mausoleum on the Kremlin wall, only about twenty percent of the zombie survived, including his head and neck. the arms of the former Soviet revolutionary leader. On the other hand, the feet have since been removed, large parts of the upper body and little finger, to stop the “decomposition processes” but also to have spare material for repairs. After Lenin’s death, Lenin’s brain was examined for signs of genius: “But they found nothing,” writes MK.
The communist boss wants to send former politicians to prison camps
Incidentally, Lenin’s mummy is the only one in the world in which the neck, arms and fingers are still flexible thanks to the achievements of former star surgeon Nikolai Pirogov. However, the mausoleum is moldy, as was said once again on Lenin’s 152nd birthday today. The anniversary is traditionally celebrated by Russian communists with parades.
For a long time President Gennady Zyuganov (77) used the opportunity to learn communist customs in his own way: He noted that five former deputy prime ministers have now left Russia for Turkey or the “West” and because they are all “secret bearers” to them belong they actually went to the Siberian Magadan – there was a center of the Soviet system of camps under Stalin.
“Lenin became hostage to his ideas”
Russia has by no means made peace with Lenin, not least because there are repeated discussions about a proper zombie burial. By the way, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov did not want to answer a question because “it had nothing to do with the topic” of the current press conference.
In Putin’s supposedly favorite newspaper, Komsomolskaya Pravda, political scientists have now made the Bolshevik leader partly responsible for the current conflicts, including the attack on Ukraine: Lenin laid the “foundations for the flourishing of nationalism” and encouraged Ukrainians and other peoples. become independent. “After the revolution, Lenin became hostage to his ideas – what was good for overthrowing the government turned out to be bad for building a new country,” said Kirill Koktisch, associate professor of political theory at the Institute of Elite of International Relations in Moscow. School of Russian diplomacy.
According to Koktisch, the “time bomb” planted by Lenin is still in motion, after all there are still 22 national republics within Russia: “It was the division into republics with the possibility of their exit from the USSR that led to the collapse of the country.”
“Russia can do without political competition”
Asked if Lenin’s dictatorship could be a model for Russia today, political scientist Georgi Bovt responded with the overwhelming suggestion that if “the composition of the elite is regularly updated” and the “fresh blood” of the best forces is introduced, it is able to succeed “without political competition”. Therefore, the model is the previous custom in China to replace the leadership every ten years, a move that the current head of state and Chinese party leader Xi Jinping (68) is known to have removed for himself, similar to Putin (69). after a constitutional change by 2036.
Two percent no longer know who Lenin was
After all, hardly anyone in Russia would like to return to the state economy, although this may be inevitable in the near future due to sanctions. In Komsomolskaya Pravda, Moscow University economist Maxim Chirkov warned of “Venezuelan conditions.” The Soviet Union replaced “efficiency with ideology,” with known consequences. Unfortunately, Russia still “dictates” not only the political but also the economic rules of the game, which deters foreign investors.
An opinion poll showed that forty percent of the 1,600 Russians surveyed believe Lenin’s work was beneficial to the country, 21 percent were critical, two percent did not know who Lenin was, seven percent could say nothing. more about it because they found it “too hard” to answer.
