Hundreds pay respects to Lenin to mark his 135th birthday

Hundreds of Russians gathered Friday outside the mausoleum where Vladimir Lenin's body lies on display to mark the 135th birthday of the leader of the 1917 revolution.

Carrying flags with the hammer and sickle of the former Soviet Union, about 600 people lined up in solemn procession, waiting for the chance to proceed through the monument.

Russian Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov and other members of the party leadership laid a wreath, the Interfax news agency reported. He bowed several times before Lenin's embalmed corpse before walking along the Kremlin wall to lay flowers near the graves of former Soviet leaders Josef Stalin, Leonid Brezhnev, and Yuri Andropov.
