Lenin is one of the most eminent political figures and revolutionary thinkers of the 20 th century, who masterminded the Bolshevik take-over of power in Russia in 1917. He was the architect and first leader of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR).

He was also a great teacher of workers worldwide.
