LENIN’S LITTLE-KNOWN TWIN BROTHER

Via Bakhyt Kenjeev, and with much gratitude to the great Russian poet Bakhyt, here’s the site of a very interesting artist from Ufa, Bashkiria, Russia, Rinat Voligamsi: www.voligamsi.com. The “Informal Album” section of the site is dedicated to V.I. Lenin and his never-extant twin brother, Sergey Ilyich Ulyanov. Overall, smart and hilarious.

The above piece is listed as “Sergey Ilyich Ulyanov with daughter Natasha at Finnish border crossing. 1925.” Here are a few more samples:
