the Communists want 24 June during the parade in honor of the 75th anniversary of Victory Mausoleum appeared before the public not a closed temporal structures and with the name of Lenin on the facade. The Communist party leadership even sent an appeal to President Putin. The answer they will get tomorrow, seeing Red square in festive attire.
the decree on holding the June 24 parade in honor of the 75th anniversary of the great Patriotic war in Moscow and other cities of Russia was signed by the President on may 29, 2020 – after authorities found the coronavirus in General defeated. June 24, 1945 on red square took place the famous Victory Parade – that’s when the walls of the Mausoleum and stood on his podium leadership of the country parade participants threw defeated banners of the Nazi army.
on June 10, 2020 at the meeting of the state Duma Nikolai Kolomeitsev (CPRF) proposed to include in the agenda a draft appeal to the President, prepared by fraction of Communists – it said that “for the purpose of preservation of historical memory” would be correct to June 24, the Mausoleum is not close. The Duma Committee on defense against the discussion of this question, then said Andrew Krasov (“United Russia”), because “it is premature”, and the Mausoleum is not a formal or informal symbols of Victory. No other faction the initiative of the Communist party is not supported.
the same day, on parliamentary letterhead, signed by Communist party leader Gennady Zyuganov in the Kremlin left a letter that was accompanied by treatment for about 40 different social organizations and trade unions. The signatories of the appeal are considered “unacceptable to hide the Lenin Mausoleum for any kind of drape and change it everyday look”, especially that “the tomb of Lenin is an integral part of ensemble of red square, which naturally included by UNESCO in the Treasury of the most significant monuments of world culture”.
“the mausoleum of VI Lenin mask required!” – this slogan can be seen now on the official website of the Communist party. It says that the appeal was supported by more and 7 labor collectives of the country. The theme is reflected and posted on the website lot of fresh verses of the first Deputy Chairman of the CPRF, state Duma Deputy Vladimir Kashin. One of them called “Moment of silence” the author laments: “In the mausoleum of the mask wearing. Who asked the soldiers? Enemies the Victory emboldened, I Wish new disasters.” Who was referring to Mr. Kashin under the enemies that are “bolder”, in a literary work is not specified.
whatever it was, the official response from the Kremlin in the Communist party have not yet been told “MK” the Deputy Gennady Zyuganov on the party, state Duma Deputy Dmitry Novikov. He recalled that “if you strictly follow the rules of record keeping, with of receipt of the appeal the President of the Russian Federation has a month to answer, and the month has not yet expired”.
But when the will expire the month the parade had already pass! “I can’t answer for them – whether they intend to respond to this event, or hide behind bureaucratic formalities,” – said Mr. Novikov. He recalled that “the first time the Mausoleum during the military parade on red square was closed in 2005, when came the President of the United States and the Protocol have set some conditions. They could be the Russian side are not accepted, but were accepted and the building was draped. And then there was a certain inertia, and it began to drape every time.”
Indeed, in 1995, the leadership of the country headed by the hated Communist President Boris Yeltsin, as in Soviet times, may 9 with a parade from the podium of the Mausoleum – however, the name of Lenin were draped with floral garland. The parade then became an annual event.
In 2000, for the first time the parade took newly elected President Vladimir Putin. He and former President Yeltsin on the podium has not risen – they stood at the bottom, but the Mausoleum was “without a mask”, and the name of Lenin anybody, apparently, not particularly bothered.
In 2005 for the first time it was possible to see the high design, a fully closed building of the Mausoleum. In that year, on Victory Day in Moscow came to the leaders of over 50 countries in the world, among them was U.S. President George W. Bush. He sat next to Vladimir Putin – in the front row center guest stands.
