«To speak about Lenin is like telling the «Arabian nights». In addition to the magic and mystery in all these stories there is logic: rock-solid "if — then"»

If we believe that Lenin alone organized revolution in Russia, we are forced to believe, that he ended the world war on his own.

If we consider Lenin to be a hacker who broke history — we must assume that history is imperfect and needs creative destruction…

Destroy all the statues and put a veto on his name – history and geography generate «lenin» themselves again.

Vladimir Ulyanov-Lenin
one of the most iconic figures of the 20th century.

One thinks of him as of a political genius, the leader of the proletariat, the creator of the state, which embodied the eternal dream of human social justice, the other considers him to be a ruthless politician, the third – a person with a good sense of humor, a traveler and a great chess player, «granddaddy Lenin». He is made up of contradictory assessments, but they all agree on one thing – this is a man who changed the world and influenced the course of history.
