«words of Comrade Spiridonov»
XXII Congress of the Soviet Communist Party, held 17-31 October 1961, was a historic right for many reasons:
- was the first of 22 senior party meetingsheld in the Grand Kremlin Palace;
- adopted a document called "The Moral Code of the Builder of Communism";
- from the "nest" took off and went to the country catch phrase of the new country's leader Nikita Khrushchev that the present and all future generations of his countrymen will live in a communist society;
- was blown up on the eve of heavy du
ty thermonuclear bomb, which became a kind of demonstration of military might of the USSR and, apparently, giving Khrushchev confidence in their actions;
- just one day before the closing announced hasty reburial of former Secretary General now as the average person.
Curiously, formally initiated this move, and state-level value, probably taken well before the congress, was not the Khrushchev and not one of the influential members of the Politburo like Frol Kozlov, Anastas Mikoyan and Mikhail Suslov.Saying it and demanded to remove Stalin from the mausoleum commissioned is neither initiated nor led oratory of the Leningrad Regional Ivan Spiridonov.By the way, soon companion Spiridonov, in the fight against the cult of personality previously unnoticed, from his post due to chronic sleep on the job were removed.
About how long was Stalin ignored doctors who are simply afraid to call on the dacha outside Moscow without the permission of the "Boss" or Lavrenty Beria, said and written a lot.No less possible words and facts remain hidden.Thus giving rise to what is natural, just a lot of speculation and rumors.March 6 the body of 73-year-old generalissimo transported to the capital, leaving in three days among the columns of the House of Unions.But taken by the NKVD and the Political Bureau of urgent safety measures, with one of those "high", a safe farewell to the deceased thousands of people obviously did not.
only in a stampede that occurred on Trubnaya Square, later dubbed "cadaver", killing nearly two hundred mourners.According to the Western "radio voices" of the victims was much higher.Enabling the Soviet people and the Communists in other countries plenty grieve temporarily left without a head of the country's leadership has decided to press located in the mausoleum almost 30 years of Vladimir Lenin embalmed.And 9 March placed in it, along with the first head of the Soviet Union, and even the second.This is how Stalin spent more than eight years.
amicably applauded as "bold" Rapporteur of Leningrad, the delegates unanimously approved a fact already prepared a solution that they abused their power and become the real culprit recent even party leaders should "leave the room".Well, in the heat of the communist deceased did not offer to do it yourself.Trying to accomplish the righteous, in their opinion, even if the posthumous trial, members of the Politburo in a hurry so that was ordered to take the body of ousted idol of millions is already the next night.Quiet reburied in the wall next to the Kremlin and the Yaroslavl Yemelyan Rosalia countrywoman.And, contrary to protocol, there were no orations, laid wreaths and senior officers of the guard of honor and military salute!
And suddenly stolen?
Historians suggest: playground, where as a result of Stalin now lies, was selected only after long discussions with the participation of the entire Politburo.However, Khrushchev proposed to bury Joseph Stalin at the Novodevichy cemetery, not far from his wife and daughter.But fears that the body can take away to Georgia, this idea was abandoned.As a result, all voted in favor of the proposal Uzbek leader Nuritdinov Mukhitdinova bury Stalin's Kremlin, along with many other important Soviet politicians, military leaders and other government officials and foreign communists.
However, years later, the secretary general of the fact of burial is in the center of Moscow began to question.For example, according to Canadian historian of Ukrainian origin Greg Sinko, there lies one of the twins.And Stalin was allegedly smuggled into the Himalayas, where, after reading the Buddhist literature in his youth, hoping to gain eternal immortality.
