Mausoleum Toilet-Papered

An unidentified man was sent to a mental hospital after pelting Lenin’s Mausoleum on Red Square with a roll of toilet paper, RIA-Novosti said Monday, citing a law enforcement source.

The man also threw a book called “Practical Advice to Landlords and Landladies” at the building housing the body of the leader of the Bolshevik Revolution. It remained unclear what prompted the incident, which police said took place Saturday.
