Abstract

The article characterizes V. I. Ulyanov (Lenin) as an outstanding Marxist, whose theoretical and practical results are immeasurably greater than anything that has been done so far by other followers of Marx and Engels. In refutation of the dirty dances of liberal politicians and theorists around the historical figure of Lenin, the memoirs of his contemporaries are given, drawing the image of V. Ulyanov as a humanist, an outstanding thinker and an unshakable proletarian revolutionary. A number of examples reveal Lenins remark that between the desire to be a Marxist and the ability to be one, lies a difficult, full of ideological and socio-political obstacles, the distance.
