The Deputy of the state Duma Natalia Poklonskaya on his page in Facebook commented on the statements of Vladimir Putin, compared the Mausoleum into a Christian Church, and the body of Lenin — with the relics of saints. Poklonskaya indicated that some politicians misinterpreted the words of the head of the state, and denied the connection of Lenin with the Christian saints.
Ex-Prosecutor of Crimea has called “inaccurate and a deliberate distortion of” when selected “use interpretiruya “in their own” words of the President about some Parallels Ulyanov dead body in the Mausoleum, on the conscience which millions of people were tortured, with the Holy relics, monasteries and temples.”
The Deputy noted that Putin was talking about something else — about the Board and try to create a false religion to a certain historical stage. Poklonskaya in his post quoted the words of Patriarch Tikhon, who in 1918 the Communists “mad men,” created “satanic deeds”.
“The mausoleum, where Lenin lies, is the personification of the business, which says a Saint, and nothing to do with God and the Holy relics of God does not have”, — she said.
We will remind, Putin spoke of communism and Christianity in an interview for the film “Balaam.” As an example of their similarity, the President cited an analogy between the relics of saints and Lenin. “Put Lenin in the Mausoleum — how is this different from the relics of the saints for Orthodox Christians, but just Christians?”, – asked Putin. He also called the moral code of builders of communism “sublimation and primitive excerpt from the Bible.”
The statement of the President previously commented Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin. He agreed with the President regarding the fact that communism and Christianity are essentially similar in the matter of setting priorities. But disagreed with the interpretation of the fact of being embalmed body of Lenin in red square. “Lenin’s body is certainly about power,” — said Chaplin.
The issue of burial of Lenin once again began to actively discuss in 2017, the anniversary of the October revolution. To betray his body to the ground, actively advocate, in particular, Ksenia Sobchak and Ramzan Kadyrov.
