Russian state archive of socio-political history has opened in the capital the exhibition «Lenin» on the political career of the leader of the world revolution. The guests of the exhibition will be able to see the iconic items — symbols of the early Soviet era and the documents signed by the first head of the USSR. Cap leader, jacket, coat and even the bullet that nearly ended his life in 1918 and the abdication of the last Russian Tsar — all this awaits the lovers of Russian history. Close — Lenin, how he saw friends and enemies; cartoons and an extract from the criminal case in which a photograph of a Bolshevik circled in blue pencil, and next to the signature to Take.

The organizers of the exhibition (the exhibits are taken from a half-dozen Russian archives and museums, including the famous roller Coaster) see their task to «illustrate» the life of Lenin for those who seek to separate the myths from the facts. Already in the first room, where the documents about the childhood of Lenin, offers an extraordinary opportunity to do so. In a conspicuous place the certificate of the leader of the famous Quartet, the logic: it’s true. On a nearby wall — Leninist genealogy, sustaining roots in the seventeenth century: the ancestors of Lenin, which are known to Europeans: Swedes and Germans. There were rumors about the relatives of Lenin among the blasphemers in the middle Ages, but the evidence was not found.

The following halls — youth Ulyanov. Studies in high school, attributing families to nobility, family life, Nadezhda Krupskaya. Unexpected transition: both are wanted on charges of planning riots. Editorial work in the underground «Truth», with journalists which Lenin did not get along. On one of the walls — a message to Lenin, in which he accuses the pravdists for the «inanity» of the fact that they are misleading the working class.
Lenin in 1917 is a hurricane of events that blew up the history of the world. On one wall is a document showing how the leader responds with a consent to the appeal of Finland to recognize its independence: «it is Necessary to arrange by agreement with your government a special Commission of representatives of both sides to develop practical activities that arise from the separation of Finland from Russia.» Next — draft «April theses», which allows to study the handwriting of Lenin. The words blurring before my eyes, which explains the caption: the leader of the revolution wrought in a sealed train, which was started with the consent of the German Empire through its territory to Russia.

Further documents which the beginning of the red terror. «It is necessary to secure the Soviet Republic from class enemies by isolating them in concentration camps»; «subject to death all persons, touching the white guard organizations.» The signature, however, is not Lenin: the responsibility assumed by the people’s Commissar of justice Kursky. So that the visitor could have a break — exhibits Lenin archive: coat, jacket, cap, mounted on a special holder.

Finally, in the final part of the exhibition — the Cabinet of Lenin, formerly in the Kremlin. Since 1994 the Museum’s reconstruction, the creators of which have carefully restored for visitors the life of the leader, moved to the Museum Gorki Leninskie, where temporarily relocated to the centre of Moscow. Cabinet empty, as if the leader just came out, but all ready to go. In a prominent place — statuette of a monkey studying a globe: it was presented to Vladimir Ilyich workers — and the leader of the proletariat placed it in his office. It is not a legend.
