Alexy on Lenin Burial

MOSCOW -- Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Alexy II has warned against a hasty decision to bury the body of Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin, currently entombed in the Mausoleum on Red Square.

The patriarch said at a meeting with leading Russian media representatives that a decision to bury Lenin should be postponed until society can adopt a calm single approach to this problem.
