100th anniversary of October Revolution


Next year is 100th anniversary of October Revolution. What Russians should do? Open all archives about Bolsheviks' activity? Give Lenin a proper funeral? He is still in Mausolem. I personlly think his presence in Mausoleum is God's punishment for killing clergy and destruction of churches by the Bolsheviks.

Not only of the October, but also of the February Revolution that overthrew the monarchy and put an end to Tsarism. This even should be commemorated for sure.

I'm not a fan of Lenin but I think that the destruction of churches was a glorious event. That's my opinion.

Churches and cathedrals are fine examples of architecture in any culture. Only crazy people such as Bolsheviks would destroy it. Not to mention killing and jailing innocent people.

A few years after the Russians destroyed their church, they began to destroy one another in large numbers. And they forced their small children to take up banners calling for death

Burn Lenin at the stake in the middle of the Red Square.

Re-bury the remains of other revolutionaries in a secret place with no access.

Demolish all their monuments, and rename the remaining landmarks that still bear their names.

Officially apologize to the victims killed or died 1917-1953, and build a memorial.

In general, that period of Russian history should be treated as Nazi period in Germany. There should be no distinction based on who won, and who lost WWII.

Ukrainians participated in revolution too, and in all future adventures of Soviet Union, "your" hands are as dirty as the russian hands. I appreciate that Ukraine is trying to move away from it past, but doing so by denying it reminds me of russians.

Couldn't agree more, i never understood why right wingers today are shamed and ostersized, WHILE people on the left are allowed public platform (like the UN for instance), brainwash people in universities etc.

- as dirty?

Quote:
XIII Congress of the RKP(b)
23-31 May 1924
J. Stalin
ORGANIZATION REPORT OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE

... g) National and sex composition.

Great Russians in the party by the XIII Congress - 72%, apparently after Lenin Enrolment the percentage should increase.

The second group are Ukrainians - 5.88%.

The third group are Jewish - 5.2%.
Then there are Turkish nationality - more than 4%, and after them other nationalities, such as Latvians, Georgians, Armenians and others.
For comparison.
According to the census in the USSR in 1926,
Russians (Great Russians) - 77,791,124
Ukrainians - 31,194,976 people.

The Ukrainians were 12 times less than the Russians among the bolsheviks in the 20s
And they were just 2,5 times less than the Russians in the population of the USSR at that time
