The Federal Security Service (FSO) introduces a ban on visiting the Lenin Mausoleum, as well as the Necropolis at the Kremlin Wall from November 17 in connection with the difficult epidemiological situation.

«From November 17, 2020, due to the difficult epidemiological situation, the admission of visitors to the Lenin Mausoleum and the Necropolis near the Kremlin wall will be temporarily suspended», - quotes RIA Novosti FSO statement.

Earlier, the Mausoleum was closed for the Day of National Unity, which is celebrated on November 4. On that day, it was also impossible to see the grave of Stalin and other Soviet leaders in the Necropolis at the Kremlin Wall.

In mid-September, a scandal erupted after the Union of Architects announced a competition for the best use of the Mausoleum after the body of Vladimir Lenin was taken out of it. The Communist Party described the initiative of the Union of Architects as a political action. After a while, the Union of Architects clarified that the proposal had no political overtones, but was aimed only at preserving one of the main monuments on Red Square.

Simultaneously with the flaring up scandal, American artist David Datong offered to buy out Lenin's body and build a copy of the Moscow Mausoleum for him in the USA. The Communist Party advised Datong to sponsor the installation of monuments to Lenin in many cities, including across from the White House in Washington.

Another scandal in 2020 with the Mausoleum erupted in the spring, during the first wave of restrictions. At the end of April, several hundred supporters of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation came to the mausoleum and necropolis to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Lenin's birthday, despite the restrictions in force in the capital.

Some of those who came to the event were without masks. The FSO then reported that the action was allowed, subject to all precautions. United Russia threatened to file an application with the prosecutor demanding to check the legality of the event on Red Square.
