cover from Russia

On 10th March I got not only five cards but also a cover from Russia.

Stamps:
Russian Kremlins (two from set of twelve) (issued 01-10-2009)


Inside was a postcard.
It shows Wladimir Iljitsch Lenin. Wladimir Iljitsch Lenin was born in 1870 in Simbirsk. In 1903 he founded the Bolsheviks. At the beginning of World War I he was in the Austro-Hungarian Empire and then in Switzerland, but in 1917 he went with the help of the German Empire back to Russia, where he later assumed the power. In 1918 his government signed the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk and ended Russia's participation in World War I. In 1922 founded the Communist Party, of which he was the leader since 1912, the Soviet Union. He died near Moscow in 1924.
It is an official card: RU-3416677


Thank You very much Polina!
