The agency refers to an interlocutor in law enforcement agencies.
“The incident took place on the night of February 6th.
The man was detained when he tried to open the mausoleum where the body of Vladimir Lenin is located and kidnap him,” the report says.
The man was found to be drunk.
According to available data, the paramedics revealed that the detainee had a "psychiatric disorder on the background of intoxication."
The Federal Protective Service confirmed the fact of the man's detention.
“He walked around Red Square, tried to get to the facade, but was detained before he succeeded,” RIA Novosti quoted the agency as saying.
In 2019, a man was also detained on Red Square, who poured oil on the paving stones, trying to break through to the Mausoleum of Vladimir Lenin.
