TOP 7 common myths about Vladimir Lenin

Vladimir Ilyich Lenin is a Marxist, Bolshevik, the founder of the first socialist state and the greatest personality, around whom irreconcilable disputes are ongoing to this day, giving rise to a lot of myths. We will try to dispel some of them.


And, perhaps, it is worth starting with the widespread misconception that the Russian revolutionary was a foreign agent. To this day, not a single evidence has been found of direct sponsorship of Lenin by the Germans, and the "sensational" documents of Sisson are fake of the Polish journalist Ossendowski.

Another major theoretician of Marxism is often accused of hatred of Russia and the Russians, attributing Russophobic statements. However, the latter are not found in any of Lenin’s work and do not belong to the leader, but to his political opponents and corrupt publicists, such as Anatoly Glazunov and Georgy Solomon.

The erroneous opinion is that Vladimir Ilyich, along with the Bolsheviks, undermined the integrity of Russia. In fact, the tsarist government was to blame for the partial territorial losses after the October Revolution, which for decades oppressed other nations, which gave rise to powerful separatist sentiments.

Another myth says that Lenin avenged his brother. Alexander Ulyanov took an active part in the revolutionary organization “Narodnaya Volya” and was sentenced to death for the attempt on the assassination of Emperor Alexander III. This was a great tragedy for the Ulyanovs family and Vladimir Ilyich himself. However, Lenin was “obsessed” with the goal of changing society for the better, and not revenge on the tsar. Therefore, he refused to continue the path of terror, at one time chosen by his brother.

Modern anti-Semites claim that Vladimir Ulyanov was a Jew, and his mother’s “maiden” name was Blank. But this is again a lie. A study of the leader’s pedigree showed that his mother was more likely to be of Swedish-German origin than Jewish.

Lenin is also unfairly accused of immorality and lack of morality. However, it is worth clarifying that the revolutionary only denied capitalist morality, which justifies war and the exploitation of the working class.

And finally, the favorite “weapon” of anti-communist propaganda is the myth that Lenin was fabulously rich. At the same time, the Ulyanovs apartment consisted of 4 modestly furnished rooms, one of which served as the leader at the same time as a bedroom and an office, and drove him in a company car, since the revolutionary never had his own “car park”.

        Yet you cannot live without me. Nonsense about nationality, leave yourself.
        As for the republics, I agree. This is almost all 15. I was not mistaken with the number.

    ... that the Russian revolutionary was a foreign agent

    If financing of the Bolsheviks by Germany and a debatable issue, then Lenin's passage through Germany, accompanied by German intelligence officers, is a historical fact.

    The erroneous opinion is that Vladimir Ilyich, along with the Bolsheviks, undermined the integrity of Russia.

    Talk about exchanging territory for peace with Germany was carried on by Lenin back in Switzerland. What then was realized in the Brest world.

    Modern anti-Semites claim that Vladimir Ulyanov was a Jew, and his mother’s “maiden” name was Blank.

    These rumors were spread by Lenin's sister.

    The elders could not find out for us. The surname seemed to us the French root, but there was no evidence of such an origin. I personally quite a long time ago began to have the idea of ​​the possibility of Jewish origin, which was prompted mainly by the message to my mother that my grandfather was born in Zhytomyr - the famous Jewish center. Grandmother - mother of the mother - was born in St. Petersburg and was originally German from Riga. But while with mother on the mother’s side of the mother and her sisters, contacts were maintained for a long time, no one heard about the relatives of her father, A. D. Blanca. It was like a cut off slice, which also led me to think of its Jewish origin.

    Lenin is also unfairly accused of immorality and lack of morality.

    Lenin was obsessed with the idea of ​​world revolution, and for the sake of this idea he was ready to give up anything.
    In modern realities, he would be a terrorist, extremist and a foreign agent.

    Blaming LENIN for all these sins is the same as blaming the RUSSIANS for the development of the lands of Russia without destroying a single nation. It wasn’t Lenin who ruined the USSR, and one should not hang other people's sins on him! And if Lenin is a “spy,” then who is Gorbachev-Yeltsin-Putin?
    And in order not to give land and not to create a republic, it is necessary to KILL, and in another way millions of people can not be conquered! There are more than 150 nationalities in Russia, and even more in the USSR. If LENIN is wrong, then who are the Anglo-Saxons right? Which annexation of land began with the destruction of the indigenous nation!
    Go to the library and read at least one volume of LENIN. And if YOU are not an enemy of Russia and Russians, YOU will be very surprised that you thought badly of such a person !!!
