Lenin's mummy

Some images from the procesures that Lenin's body has to undergo every once in a while. Lenin As He Is Today:
Many of our readers know that in the middle of Moscow, right on the Red Square, next to the Kremlin there is a Lenin’s tomb, called “mausoleum”.

There, inside, mummy of Lenin lies. Really, not only Egyptians made mummies but Soviet authorities decided to make a mummy of Lenin as a symbol of Soviet Era and October Revolution.

And because its all made of flesh and bones, at least it was made of it, it needs some cleaning and service a few times a year. Here we have some screenshots from Russian TV channel where the operation of regular service on Lenin’s mummy was shown.

The ear is the wrong shape. The right fist is unclenched, whereas it's clenched when you see it in the mausoleum. Too much hair on the front of the scalp. Bottom line: this is not Lenin's body. maybe a replica was used for the documentary.

Mummy on photo has hair Lenin hadn't got - that is not Lenin.

BTW it could be the same body you could see in Moscow - in 1941/2 winter during German attack on Moscow remains of Lenin moldered in ~80% and it must be replaced with other body's parts.

Right - that's not Lenin's body at this picture.
There are some more bodies in the laboratory that are meant to carry out tests with them in order to ensure the efficiency of balsamation techniques implied.
Particularly, the oldest body is kept in the laboratory since 1949 - it is embalmed in the same way as Lenin's one.
So that is just one of the experimental bodies. You'll never ever find anywhere the pictures of Lenin's body in the laboratory.

This is indeed Lenin's body. Yes, it has hair. Do you not realize that hair grows post mortem?

It is a myth that hair and fingernails grow after death. What happens is that the skin shrinks, thus giving the false appearance of growth.

Glorious leader? You have to be KIDDING me. One of the biggest POS to ever degrade the planet. Every family member of a person who has been slaughtered through the auspices of Lenin's evil philosophy should get a free stomp on that carcass until it disintegrates.
