Today it is the birthday of Lenin (he was born in 22.04.1870).

The thread is more about the person who was "the reason" of revolution in Russia in 1917.

We spoke about Stalin, but we have never (yet) talked about Lenin's personality and our perception about him?

What do you think? What is your attitude towards Lenin?

The Lenin statue outside my house was vandalized last night. Someone threw white paint all over it.

I think Lenin is like Russia's golden boy. Everywhere there is either a Lenin statue, street or his face on the side of a building.

That is true (I mean name of Lenin was everywhere in USSR).

Still in some cities there is one statue on the main square, one Lenin steet (I could not find in Moscow (thomb is not included) anymore, but in regions), a lot of memorial desks on the houses, where Lenin met with someone, lived or stayed for some seconds. :)

So what do you think of Lenin, himself, wht do you know about him and what is your attitude?

First of all, he had nothing to do with the revolution. A cynical opportunist and a traitor who was financed by the enemy to destroy the foundations of his country at time of war. What happened in October 1917 was a bloody coup. Lenin and his bolshevik thugs had very little to do with the February revolution.

I second what GaNozri has said. In fact, since I have have come back to Russia (my grandparents left after the revolution, I was born in Australia) and talked with friends that they knew little of the Germans helping him.

paid for the train to bring him and his entourage back to St.petersburg.He should have stayed back in Switzerland, the world would have been better off. unfortunately, hindsight comes always to let.

I think his songwriting was much better than McCartney's.

The best thing to say about Lenin is that he was the only man Stalin respected. Just imagine. . .

respected and then isolated from others in Gorky (Datcha). :)

btw, in USSR we always laughed at quites common pronunciation of two names Lenin and Lennon:

- Do you like Lenin?
- Oh, yes! Especially: "Yesterday, all my troubles seem so far away..." (no matter, that Lennon did not compose this song).

Thanks! Good article, worth reading. Certainly, my historical knowledge has been very limited... for instance, I had no idea that his name was not Lenin at birth!:fridaysign:
