The government decided to preserve the body of Lenin for future generations.
As no attempts to mummify a body for generations had ever been attempted before, the Russians had to invent a highly complex process of embalming.
Lenin's body requires extensive chemical baths, injections and evaluation. The body's organs were removed and replaced with a humidifier and pumping system, designed to maintain the body's core temperature and fluid intake.
His mummy is so well preserved as is evident from the image that it looks as if he will wake up any time.
When the Soviet Union existed, Lenin's suits were changed once a year. Since the fall of the communist nation, the mummy's suit is changed every five years.
