MOSCOW, March 9. /TASS/. Russia’s Liberal Democratic Party (LDPR) believes it is necessary to move all burials from Red Square to the memorial cemetery in Mytishchi, a city in the Moscow region, the party’s leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky told a TASS news conference on Wednesday.
He recalled that on March 5, the anniversary of Joseph Stalin’s death, people had brought flowers to his grave on Moscow’s Red Square. "(They) brought flowers to Stalin on March 5. The bloody dictator! We still cannot break off with it," Zhirinovsky said.
The LDPR leader even drew parallels between the Soviet ideology and the ideology of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group outlawed in Russia. "You are against Soviet government - be prepared to get shot. You are against the Islamic State - get ready to be shot, too. A terrible ideology, one idol, one leader, smuggling, forgery and looting," he said.
According to Zhirinovsky, the Islamic State "robs the Middle East, they are removing artifacts," and "the Bolsheviks looted all Tsar’s treasures."
He proposed to move all burials from Red Square. "There is a memorial cemetery in Mytishchi, there is plenty of space there. All Red Square, all burials should be transferred there," Zhirinovsky said.
