If Vladimir Putin were the defender of traditional Russian civilization that some imagine him to be, he would do this. But he's not, so he won't.
From Wikipedia: "Since 1991, there has been
some discussion about removing the Kremlin Wall Necropolis and burying
Lenin's body...His successor, Vladimir Putin, opposed this, pointing out
that a reburial of Lenin would imply that generations of citizens had
observed false values during 70 years of Soviet rule."
Well, they did. And it
is long past time to deal with it. Lenin was a mass-murdering monster,
no better than Hitler. It should be no more respectable to honor
Communism in Russia than it is to honor Nazism in Germany. The fact that
the mausoleum still stands 23 years after the fall of his evil system
is an abomination. There is only one real and legitimate Russia, and
that is the Russia of the Tsars. The disgusting mausoleum should be
demolished, and both communism and republicanism along with it. Long
live Empress Maria Vladimirovna!
