Time Capsule Discovered Under Lenin Statue

A time capsule buried beneath a statue of Lenin in 1970s Soviet Union has been uncovered in the Russian city of Kamchatka.

Placed there by young Soviet pioneers, a message inside the vessel and addressed to the "People of 2024", reads: "Without memory there is no future. Remember, as we remember, the immortal heroes of the October Revolution and the Civil War, heroes of the glorious defence of our country in the terrible years of Nazi invasion, the great workers of communist construction."

The capsule was buried on July 15, 1979, on the 55th anniversary of the founding of the youth organisation Komsomol. It was uncovered in the far east Russian city on the same day this year.

It has been given over for safekeeping to a military museum.

The message ends: "We say to you, who will join us in 45 years, … let your character be courageous. Let your songs be happier. Let your love be hotter. We do not feel sorry for ourselves because we are certain: you will be better than us.

"Improve the world and yourself in the name of communism, as Vladimir Ilyich Lenin taught us, as the Communist Party teaches us! Lenin is always with us!"
