synopsis

In the “Ordinary Bolshevism” the gentle “grandpa Lenin” appears in his real figure, which was hidden from us during the tens of years by his followers. You have never seen such Lenin. Authors will tell how cynically and cruelly the Lenin’s ideas were implemented.

For example, about the famine, which was organized by Bolsheviks, about the Gulag, about the cooperative actions of communists and fascists in 1920’s – 1940’s. The film is based on the unique archival materials, which have been top secret until only recent. This is the narration about the secret and obvious history of Russia.
