Stalin's Birthday - Nostalgia for USSR - Communists on Red Square
In spite of heavy snowfall on December 21, 2005, a lot of supporters of former Communist dictator Josef Stalin, mostly people from old generation, came to celebrate his birthday in Red Square. Quietly walking with red soviet flags and portraits of Stalin through the blocked for safety Red Square, they laid down flowers on his grave behind Lenin’s Tomb (Mausoleum) to mark the 126th anniversary of his birth. For the nostalgic supporters Stalin remains revered for his almost 30-year rule when he led Russia to the status of a great power and defeated Nazi Germany in World War II. He died in 1953.
