After Hanoi, Vinh city is the next locality being chosen to build the Statute of Lenin – the founder of the Soviet State, the world’s first workers’ and peasants’ State. It is of great significance as Nghe An province is the homeland of President Ho Chi Minh who led the Vietnamese people to successfully carry out the August Revolution to found the first workers’ and peasants’ State in Southeast Asia.

Situated in one of the most beautiful places in Vinh city, the statue is 3 metres high and carries the name of Lenin as well as his years of birth and death written in the Russian and Vietnamese languages in the front surface and the letters “As a signal of friendship” written in the Russian and Vietnamese languages in the back.

Lenin’s thought has opened up new horizons and enlightened the Vietnamese people in the struggle for national liberation and socialism building. During his journey to find ways of saving the nation, President Ho Chi Minh was very happy to meet and read Lenin’s book on nation and colony issues. Since then, the Vietnamese leader followed Lenin and became the first Vietnamese communist who brought Marxism – Leninism to the Vietnamese revolution.

Nghe An and Ulyanovsk province, the homeland of Lenin, have set up close relationship since 1990s. Ulyanovsk authority and people have developed a President Ho Chi Minh Square and Statute, and re-named a boulevard and a school after President Ho Chi Minh./.
