To the Editors:
I enjoyed reading the September-October, 2014, issue of Russian Life. However, I noticed an unfortunate inaccuracy in the otherwise wonderful article on the Moscow Zoo. According to the article, Lenin delivered “a speech among the animals in 1915.” This could not be possible. Vladimir Lenin was in Switzerland from 1908 through early 1917; it wasn’t until April 1917 that he returned to Russia (St. Petersburg).
