The decision to embalm to Hugo Chavez continues the revolutionary tradition started after the death of Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin, whose mummy lies in the mausoleum in Red Square in Moscow since 1924. Lenin was embalmed just died, in January 1924, for, as I said then, the newspaper Pravda , giving the possibility to "all workers" say goodbye to the "leader of the world proletariat." Experts say that the current Russian technologies , inherited from the Soviet predecessors who invented, will retain the mummy of Lenin for "an indefinitely long time"according to some experts, the mummy retains only a quarter of the original tissue, but Ilya Zbarski, the scientific body that cared for eighteen years, said in 2000 that he still had to keep the DNA molecules and could even beclonedThe conservation of the mummy is embalmed as a result both of thesophisticated system of maintenance that is located under the Lenin Mausoleum in Red Square in Moscow. The only time that the mummy of Lenin's mausoleum was absent during the Second World War, when Nazi troops approached Moscow and was evacuated during 1360 days to the Siberian city of Tyumen.

This was done and well maintained

Two days after his death, Lenin's body was publicly displayed in the Hall of Columns, ancient dance of Moscow aristocracy which thereafter became the scene of the funerals of all Soviet Communist leaders. Simultaneously, he began designing and building the first mausoleum, the January 27, 1924 opened its doors to the endless line of people from then until today runs along the transparent sarcophagus, designed by engineer Nikanor Kurochkin , who also created the ruby crystal to the stars of the towers of the Kremlin. in 1930 that temporary wooden mausoleum was replaced with the current marble pyramid, granite, labradorite and pórfito by architect Alexei Schusev. Under that building, without which it is difficult to imagine as the famous Red Square and from whose podium in the Soviet Communist leaders saluted military parades, operate a machine room and everything a special laboratory, called to preserve the mummy of the founding of the State Soviet . A complicated system is responsible for creating the optimal conditions of temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, lighting and other parameters in the sarcophagus and other facilities where the mummy lies. Every day, fifteen minutes before the public opening of the tomb, the mummy is taken from a metal coffin , where it is stored when it is not displayed, then it is moistened with a special spray and placed in the sarcophagus proof glass bullets. Both are totally airtight containers and keep the mummy are filled with a special gasRight there, under the Mausoleum, every year the mummified remains of Lenin for two months undergo a series of chemical processes and biological processes to ensure it remains incorruptible. Simultaneously reviews the state of the technical teams to ensure temperature and humidity needed for optimal preservation of the mummy. After the death of Joseph Stalin in 1953, Lenin shared the pantheon with his successor, also embalmed, to "thaw" the next chief Soviet Nikita Khrushchev, who denounced the repression and the cult of personality of the dictator and in 1961 ordered the removal his body and bury him behind the mausoleum. The mausoleum was subject to compulsory pilgrimage in times of the USSR , and, although visits annually descend, still attracts tourists and onlookers, including dating couples who come to celebrate their wedding in Red Square. At the same time, Russian society arise sporadically discussions about the possibility of ending this singular worship and remove the heartland Lenin's mummy. According to official data, in January 2013 in favor of burying the remains of Lenin delivered a 49.56% of the Russians, while the 50.44 is categorically against it out of where it is.
