Happy birthday: as the Russians relate to the burial of Lenin

On Saturday, April 22, will mark the 147th birthday of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. Fans of the leader of the revolution had already planned on the morning of laying flowers to the mausoleum, however, since languages are the Russians still coming off question: is it time to bring the body Ulyanov-Lenin earth? To the State Duma before the bill was introduced on the legal mechanism of reburial, and the plan agreed upon by many. However, according to the poll, 39 percent of Russians Mausoleum is a tourist attraction.

According to experts VTSIOM, over the past few years the number of Russians wishing as soon as possible to bury the body of Vladimir Lenin “as expected” decreased from 43 percent to 32. Whether it is connected with the change of generations is unknown; however, 31 percent of respondents offers to wait some time until this issue will not cease to affect those for whom the personality of Lenin is important and the road. Recall that in the State Duma during the discussion of the possibility of burying Lenin’s body, the representatives of the Communist party has called such proposals in the centenary year of the October revolution, a provocation, designed to “debase the whole of Soviet history”.

According to the results of the latest survey, 39 percent of Russians perceive the Mausoleum with Lenin’s body as an integral part of the city, a tourist attraction, and are neutral to it. Another 18 percent of respondents believe that Lenin’s body is on red square — in the center of the country — in law, and 38 percent call it wrong.

– Fluctuations, apparently due to situational factors rather than changes in political attitudes of Russians. The reason for this situation in respect to the personality of Lenin and the mausoleum. The image of Lenin, the Mausoleum – for the majority – not the elements of ideology, and only the symbols, to each his own. For some this is a symbol of the Soviet period in the history of the country, for others a symbol of the capital and red square. The characters must be valid, – said the head of the practice of political analysis and consulting VTSIOM Mikhail Mamonov.

For those who take Lenin’s body “attractions” and tourist attraction, “MK” has prepared a list of other places in the capital, one way or another connected with the name of the leader of the revolution:

* Leningrad station. From 1918 to 1921 Lenin often visited there, traveling from Petrograd, from Moscow and back.

* Vorobyovy Gory in the Soviet years, a reason it was called “Lenin” in 1918, Vladimir Ilyich loved to walk there in rare moments of rest.

* Former Michelson factory in Serpukhivka was the place where in 1918 the leader shot Fanny Kaplan. The current name of the place (and tram) it reminds about: “Plant Vladimir Ilyich” (ZVI).

* In honor of family values: monument, specially put on the corner of Lenin Avenue and the street Krupskaya. No politics: Nadezhda Konstantinovna and Vladimir Ilyich just sitting, embracing, like a normal couple. However, in the hands of their morning newspaper.

The media showed video of the detention of the accomplice of an attack on FSB in the Khabarovsk

Regional Agency AmurMedia has posted a video of detention of the accomplice of an attack on reception of the Federal security service (FSB) in Khabarovsk

On shots of operative shooting seen as law enforcement officers while in the apartment of the suspect laid on the floor man, handcuffed him and started the interrogation.

The requirement of the militiaman, who was behind the camera, state your name, the man replied, “Gadji Ibragimov Marat Mohammed Jevtovic”. He also noted that his house is a machine.

Earlier on Friday, April 21, “Interfax” with reference to an informed source announced the arrest of one of the suspects in the attack on the shooting club in Khabarovsk. The Agency said that the detainee, a 29-year-old native of Stavropol Krai, previously convicted was not in his apartment were seized fighting machine with cartridges, which, according to preliminary data, were kidnapped from Tira Khabarovsk. Just when the attack on Tyr stole 40 weapons, and instructor of tyre was killed.

As reported by RBC, the FSB believes that stolen in a shooting club weapons were used in the attack on the office of the FSB in the Khabarovsk region on April 21. The attack killed two people, including FSB. The assailant Anton Konev born in 1999 — was also shot dead. According to security forces, Konev was associated with the nationalist organization.

In Moscow will toughen the liability of motorists for speeding

System photos and videoidentity speeding violations on the roads of Moscow is transferred in a permanent regime. This was announced by the head of the Center for organization of traffic (TSODD) Vadim Yuriev. The system allows you to quickly transmit information about the offender to the traffic police and make the report.

The new camera will capture particularly the worst offenders of the speed limit — it fixes the speed limit of 60 kilometers or more per hour. System testing began in October of last year, and during this time, Moscow managed to catch “on hot” 14 drivers. For such a violation to be a year to lose their licences. Now documents riders are taken to court.

– The “pit stop” complexes of fotovideofiksatsiey permanently fix speeding more than 60 km/h and automatically transmit information to nearby crews of traffic police, which in turn stops the driver and constitute a material providing for judicial review and, in particular, the decision on deprivation of the right of control of the vehicle, explained St. George.

We will remind that earlier, so drivers faced a fine “standard” punishment for speeding is 500 rubles, and if you pay quickly then you can get away with half the amount. “Chain letter” comes in the old fashioned way, by mail. However, the excess can seriously differ one from the other: and, according to Yuryev, the car speeding through the city at speeds over a hundred kilometers, poses a risk to themselves and to other drivers and pedestrians.

Especially risky is on interchanges and ramps: according to information provided by analysts more accidents in the past year was recorded and the interchange with the Moscow ring road and Third ring road and on major highways.

The most dangerous place in 2016, became the junction of third ring road and Leningradsky Prospekt.

In second place was the junction of MKAD and the Leningrad highway on the third — phase Volgograd highway at the interchange with the TTC, on the fourth crossing of Mira Avenue and TTK.

Fifth place went to 33-th km of MKAD at the intersection with the Warsaw highway, on the sixth — the intersection of Suschevsky Shaft and Oktyabrskaya streets. In seventh place Avtozavodskiy bridge, eighth — junction of MKAD and Shchelkovo highway.

Ninth place in the list of risks was ranked 28-th kilometer of Moscow ring road at the junction with the M4 highway and Lipetsk street. And closes the list of the site of the Leningrad highway to the Congress on the International highway.

The cause of the accident often becomes the speeding: if you drive off the ring road or the TTC, while ignoring the brake pedal, the risk of “kiss” has grown significantly. As explained “MK” the General Director of the center of expertise “Traffic without danger” Vadim Melnikov, the essence of innovation – not “education” and rapid response to dangerous road users.

– Exceeding more than 60 miles is the limit above which is not to rise. We need to understand that the higher the excess, the more dangerous such a motorist for their neighbors downstream. This is a high level of responsibility where there is insufficient penalty. Therefore, the new system is that the police can quickly obtain information about this driver and to stop it. That is to prevent a dangerous situation on the road. It aims to identify aggressive drivers. Until today the system worked as a pilot project, so we need to understand that we still have some time adapting it to the urban space.

The young man lured the operative and translator on the pretext that he intended to give them information about the extremists, said the source in the FSB. Exactly how developed further events until the end is unknown. According to a source RBC in the special forces, Konev opened fire from a TT pistol. Then he took a Kalashnikov rifle from the killed FSB officers started shooting randomly from him. “Shot at those who I saw,” said the source.

How many people attacked the club is unknown. In FSB say that Konev was one. The source of “Interfax” argues that at least one person detained. “During the search [in a rented apartment] he discovered and seized a fighting machine with cartridges, according to preliminary data, stolen in the attack on tyre,” — said the Agency interlocutor. He said that the detainee, a 29-year-old native of Stavropol Krai, previously convicted was not.

Konev on the page in social network “Vkontakte” from August 2016 was published four videos, which depicted several young people who train to shoot from pistols and machine guns and throw bottles with an incendiary mix. On one of the clips, hear a male voice utters “Allahu Akbar”. AmurMedia with reference to the eyewitness says the assailant before shooting yelling “Allah Akbar”. Earlier Life reported that a young man two years ago converted to Islam.

Konev was associated with a small nationalist group “Stolz”, told RBC two people in the FSB. According to one of them, the group appeared at the end of 2012, the number of traffic — about 15 people in the ages 17-20 years, they consider themselves “fighters for morality”.

For example Partizan

Konev and grouping “Stolz” — not the most well-known representatives of the nationalist movement in the far East. So, in a series of attacks on police officers and drug dealers accused of “Primorsky partisans”. Group intensified after in April 2009 in Moscow police major Denis Yevsyukov opened fire in a supermarket “Island”. The task of “partisans” called to combat “isokoski gang.” Two of the alleged members of the group Andrei Sukhorada and Alexander Sweet was killed in June 2010, when security forces stormed their apartment; the other convicted of murder, encroachment on the lives of government officials, arms trafficking, car theft and other crimes.

“Partisans” was considered a neo-Nazi group; in particular, Sukhorada was formerly a member of the banned National Bolshevik party. However, other members of the group Alexander Kovtun and Roman Savchenko, being in a detention center in Vladivostok, had converted to Islam; Kovtun in his open letter called this religion “the salvation for all people.”

“The case of the “Primorsky partisans” special, because almost all members of the group were without any political background. But this fellow is clearly background is. Of assaults on police (the FSB is exotic) was plenty just from the extreme right, because it is hostile to the system. It is absolutely not unusual, and the far East nothing here stands out. What is unusual is that in these attacks there was quite a long break, it was still prevalent five years ago”, — told RBC Director of the information analytical center “Sova” Alexander Verkhovsky.

“There is a known phenomenon that many ultra-disappointed in his performance because you can’t see in it prospects, and they begin to feel that the future belongs to radical Islam. There is a noticeable number of cases where ultra-peroxide radical Islamists,” — said Verkhovsky. He cited the example of the story of Kirill Prisyazhnyuk, which is part of the St. Petersburg neo-Nazi group “Nevograd”: in prison he became an Islamist after his release he left the Caucasus and married a Muslim. In the end, he was detained on the Turkish-Syrian border in December 2016 received 4 years in prison for recruiting in the banned “Islamic state”.

Five secrets to a perfect wedding

For key participants in the events — bride and groom — a time of stress and anxiety. Important is to choose the place and time, guest list and possible financial problems. Here are guidelines to help make this important event without the unnecessary worries and unnecessary effort. The main thing is to try to read them in advance, when there is still time.

The format of the wedding

At the beginning of the planning it is important to articulate: what type of holiday you want. It may be a quiet evening with the closest high Jinks with an invitation to all friends, relatives or wedding away in another country. Each option will require some preparation and investment efforts.

Leading to the wedding

This person will be the main assistant at the festival and will provide employment and dedication of the guests. Leading can be called the oxygen of the event. It creates the movement desired emotions from the participants and ensures that everyone present feel comfortable.


With him it is important to determine not to go beyond. It is rather difficult time. When it comes to such an important occasion, it is not easy to resist the desire to do everything at the highest level, even if it is unaffordable financially. To collect debts, credits — a dangerous and slippery slope. And therefore it is better to rely on the money that you are willing to invest a day of celebration and no debt. It is important for psychological comfort. The risky way is to rely on the generosity of the guests, which will help to compensate for the losses. As practice shows — it is better to rely entirely on its own.

The opinions of others

It so happened that almost every future guest, especially close relative, has an opinion about how should look the perfect wedding. But this opinion should not worry about the future wife and husband. A wedding is primarily a celebration of the couple and to the phrase than mere rhetorical figure, try to disconnect from external influences and take only those decisions that resonate with you.

Excessive perfectionism

At the wedding, the couple sometimes meet with intense individuals who carefully monitor the situation and relax for a minute. This is understandable — you want everything to be perfect. But to control the situation — the path to the loss of the sense of occurring holiday. Let other people do that. And you get the joy of the moment and full of light-heartedness!
