a philosophy turn it and then turn it into something that all society could use and it was well intentioned to get in their checks disco music on the national review this man was to idealise for his time and he's still idealist now i think is completely over the top to keep him in there and you know cheering him in the ground and using the real soon. he turns everything upside down. there's nothing else to say. he was ill and in the father of the so you're. right and then changed. and there were friends here from the younger generations you could say that the image of the leader has turned into a retro almost extinct not helped by tacky c veneers pop star t. shirts and she owns it seems now that lennon said she equally celebrated and mourns and the good and bad he did in his life of both acknowledged one of the days
and thousands of people queuing up to see his. comments were at the recording locations it's still the main association. with him. in this program we were real many other places that were close to the bullshit leader which was a distant friends of his life. was in the capital for most of the previous century when in fact to make it the ministry said center of the country. because of german threats move the ball strict policy from separatist buy off the ground as it was called and said last year in march one thousand eight seeing red square on the kremlin what's become a landmarks in his life will become his final resting place originally i wouldn't say i'm the stone that most of them which we see the highlands today was opened in nineteen thirty and still open for public viewing recent rumors that suggested by his body might be removed elsewhere. even if in fact happens no matter what your
political or historical background it is clear that lenin was an exceptional human being even if you don't like the policies or ideology he stood for lenin moved into the most the kremlin in the one nine hundred eighteen legend has it not he took both his wife and the cooks kyra and his and that's not french born revolutionary innocent ottomans with him. was a hot new reality i'm an ashtray we head towards the national front now the last cheese a case of the access to many many locations previously closed and even a nursery and us soft museums have. houses hotels bunkers it seems the russian capital is now open to well almost if you want an example of a consequence house in the last century this is perfect built in one hundred three by the famed version are attacks from the event of a national home town has been in storage for more than a century before the revolution the hotel hosted foreign diplomats clutch issues
routine business talkies indeed a famous after nine hundred seventy international has been claimed the first house of the soviets became a residence of the bolshevik government committed some top communist leaders our main point of interest is really one of seven the bright spots in syria serves the location well antique furniture high ceilings and a sense of history name is in the room one hundred and seventy here in my opinion but only has one of the best years of the capital but it's also packed full of history accommodating the ball straight party this was inside the russell hotel was famously home to lennon and his life for two weeks and last nights in a city in a hotel has been renovated since but still want a result ice in the mains this grounds this century that's with us. each you can gaze across the kremlin and much of his cars task. today this ring
costs thousands of dollars a night i'm not quite sure the beach impressed with the price idea same rights for everyone needs a little moses said victuals hutto is historically connected with linen and the bullshit girl mentioned is still of interest for many and only those interested do not necessarily need to book a room you can apply for a special tour as the department of cultural heritage with more skilled surgeon exclusions are organized twice a year. living all and wants other muscular cations connects with men's life. then it is often. and how much he is now on historical exhibits in detail representing the atmosphere in which he lived and watch for several years the regional cabinet was opened to the public in one nine hundred fifty five and became of the most visited museums in the country but as it was located in the kremlin the same building where the actual russian government president was in the niger ninety's it was decided to move the cabinet to the state and in such a complex
a goalkeeper one fifty thousand historical i seem to be moved including many is clogged which still shows the time when he left the group for the last time. a book items which relate to lennon's work represent a period for nine hundred eighteen thousand nine hundred twenty three and the personal belongings from the collection which were used by lennon in his everyday life but older than that some of them were used by several generations of the union or family and date back to eight hundred forty two while this in red square you often see lennon lookalikes snap happy tourists. friends across taken to the wrong place axes various men to train many. and even nicholas the seconds and for one hundred roubles that's around three dollars you tube and her cheesy reminder of your time. with the lennon is especially popular among foreigners but i have to say there are more stranger when it comes to money they understand lennon sells just
like everything else in this world. monuments to lenin are not only examples of study of art but the also one of the main symbols for the era says the dungeon twenty's thousands of monuments were erected in almost every city a small town of the west he saw in moscow alone there were dozens of sculptures of the fawcett leader erected in the city squares in front of mistreated buildings and you can still see many of them today stack. one of moscow's most luxurious hotels in a city center was once a stage eleven speeches the metropole hotel built in the beginning of the twentieth century. became a base for the bolshevik government many leaders lived and worked in the metropole and it was often visited by many when he addressed his associates in the one hundred twenty s. it started functioning as a hotel again for decades it's rooms are only available from russian and international celebrities and politicians now anyone can stay at the historic hotel
but remember it does come to a price up with what's in the cup in the hotel has been preserved in its original look despite all the wars and revolutions of the twentieth century here today is the same as it was nine hundred eighteen when the bolshevik government had its meetings here but its deputies smoked a lot so when restoration right was carried out in the nineteen inches it all to spawn doubt that the painted walls and stained gloss were all but a small damaged which they had to clean to restore their original their gratian. many his life works and theories are still studied by hundreds of institutions around the world school is evaluate the ideology of communism naturists his political influence and researches look at the bolshevik impact on the u.s.s.r. was the man who organized evolution and around the country for almost six years has his legacy still visible in all parts of russia. was
a vital figure for the twentieth century that's for sure. ten kilometers south of moscow he we are ok should be a state. this vast space belong to various nobleman from the eighteenth century ending up in the position of deny the morals of the widow of the famous. patron. the saudi government. looks yuri's property was nationalized and became. the winter garden here is breathtaking. thanks to b. c. and another note a dutch answer running grounds are open to the public today but only for organized tours the house is filled with lennon's possessions and you can see everything from gifts given to man in his wheelchair there is close to his four thousand to collections. in may nineteen twenty three he followed medical advice and left the
moscow kremlin. he was here as a frown man only in his early fifty's vladimir image enough to spend his final years in september ninety eighty in a soviet leader were completed here after i listen ation attempts and he spends an increased amount of time at the as his health deteriorated over the coming years finally living in some retirement he died in this actual bad in the twenty first of january ninety twenty four. after the instant the complex was renamed linsky estate officially became a museum in one hundred thirty eight and was a place of pilgrimage so the citizens right up to the fall of the iron curtain from viewing his death mask here to visiting his embalmed point the red square we're talking about local historian tourists all modern day communists the epic achievements of lenin still has a cult following and all the places connected with his life and legacy are as
fascinating as the journey that was made his life. a place called building well unfortunately that's what's how we have on this week's program i'll see you again at the same time next week so until then for me and the rest of the crew from london's spectacular. seventy six hours of intense fighting. six thousand desert.

hysteria in that house to the mosque olympics in one thousand eight hundred became the center of celebrations marking that fact russian olympic champions and famous athletes turn up giving everyone the chance to talk to some top sports stars. i think an event such as this one should be held every year as it is an important occasion for all the current former and future russian olympians and of the population see that athletes give it their all during the games the exposure will increase regardless of the result. i consider this special day to be a personal holiday for me since i'm in a limpid campaign i'm going to employ of the olympic committee our main goal is to simply expose as many children as possible to sports for a healthier future generation. there is always something to be improved the governing body of the russian olympic movement but it has had to raise
a lot of champions and once an athlete takes part in the olympics and then olympian forever you know that the that you know forget it but you know everything i do now is connected with sport and that's great i spend more than twenty years in sport and i don't want to let it go i feel some responsibility and i have to give something back and many people have a lot of effort into making an olympic champion out of it what is that that that. some of the athletes who arrived at the round are still aiming for olympic gold and with his social effects in mind rushing to national hockey player might seem a few idea yet who this announcement of the pointy end of the needle i believe you know as russia's new head coach. this. that's the fourth quarter to one for himself. and the medals. people who are disappointed by what was just
a little sport with thirty five different activities to try out there was something for everyone russia is going to host many significant sports events like the world students gain in cuz i think twenty thirteen next year you see the winners such olympics and then of course the world cup in twenty teams and a lot is being done to make sports more popular among youth and this event is a big part of the program lots of children here enjoying themselves and hopefully many future sports stars among them the same build up of archie must go. and the meantime the ministry of sports to resume new policy should straighten punish any sport federation failing to prepare athletes properly for international competitions that's according to president nixon it's very different to have gotten a meeting over a sports council. and a head of state believes the sanctions should be tough. this sports ministry must watch particular programs very closely into the call corresponding measures if
they're not being carried out quickly and then a story could go as far as just going in the professional licenses of good relations in the worst case you could even take them away permanently. a bit of google news now on the black and blue half of milan have welcomed their fourth manager we're going to well months ago john kerry neither man hoping to become a fixture at this in cereal the fifty three year old knows the game well having been groomed think event as youth system during the start of his playing career guess very late. as juno a managing two thousand and six finishing fifth in siri in two thousand and nine and second behind city rivals a sum a long season with manager they are not of the promptly stepping down to take over as director as well we have more essential man in france. now the russian women's basketball team have made it into the quarterfinals of the european championships in poland after winning the cannot from a game of the second group stage socolovsky squalled beating the czech republic
