Burring Lenin not a priority - Mironov

The body of Vladimir Lenin will be buried sooner or later, but the issue is not a priority, said Federation Council Speaker Sergei Mironov.

"I am absolutely sure that sooner or later the will of Lenin, or Ulyanov Vladimir Ilyich, will be fulfilled. He said he wanted to be buried according to Orthodox Christian traditions. He was an atheist, but nevertheless he wanted his body to be committed to earth," Mironov told reporters during his visit to Elista, Kalmykia.

However, this is not a priority, he said. "Maybe our descendants will do it, it is not important when," he said.

"As if there were no other problems in Russia. Did we solve the poverty problem, have we built all roads, do all kids get warm rations at schools, do we have good pensions? Let him lie, where he lies," he said, Interfax reported.
