A recent opinion poll indicates that 48 percent of Russians think Lenin’s embalmed body should be removed from the Red Square mausoleum in which it has been displayed since 1924, and buried in a cemetery. Meanwhile, 38 percent think the body of the Bolshevik leader should stay where it is. Those who want Lenin to remain in the mausoleum tend to be rural-dwellers, the elderly, and the less well educated. (Interfax, March 16)
