Political leader, actors, rockers and gonfalonieres to "exile" Lenin from Mausoleum on his birthday

Moscow, April 21, Interfax - Leader of Russian liberal democrats Vladimir Zhrinovsky together with actors, rock musicians and Orthodox activists will hold a procession with cross around the Kremlin on Lenin's birthday, April 22, urging to remove the his body from the Mausoleum.

The action's slogan is "Idol out of Kremlin!" Zhrinovsky with actor Nikita Jigurda and actress Viktoria Unikel in a cabriolet will head the procession with cross at Vasilyevsky Slope chanting the prayer "I reject you Satan", organizers told Interfax-Religion on Tuesday.

State Duma MPs and Orthodox gonfalonieres will follow the car in a catafalque.

"The Mausoleum is not only a leaflet agitating for communism, but the main devil's temple. This suggests the necessity to demolish it," the initiators believe.

According to them, the Mausoleum was built by Architect Schusev "in image and likeliness" of the Pergamon Altar mentioned in Apocalypses as "the satan's representation on Earth" (And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is", Rev 2:12-13).

"Thus, the Pergamon Altar rose from the ashes in Lenin's Mausoleum in the very heart of our country. Moreover, mummy of the man, who was the cruelest fighter against Christianity and whose atheism bordered on Satanism is placed in it!" organizers said.
