Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov Lenin

Person  Male  Born 22/4/1870  Died 21/1/1924

Categories: Politics & Administration

Countries: Russia

Founder of the USSR. Born and died in Russia. Political theorist and Communist revolutionary. Reviewing a book on Lenin in the Observer, 23 October 2016, Nigel Jones wrote: "... once in power Lenin proved a tyrannical, murderous despot ...". Visited London 6 times between 1902 and 1911. Big fan of the British Museum and its Library. Sarah J. Young has a very readable page about Lenin in London.

From Idealogical Commentary: Theme song for Lenin: "I was born under a squandering Tsar".

Surely the most inaccessible statue of anyone is Lenin's bust at the southern pole of inaccessibility.
