I think in St. Petersburg I saw a statue of Lenin's wife. She opposed Stalin's use of Lenin after he died. She did not want her husband to be memorialized that way. Luckily Stalin was never able to erect his greatest monument to Lenin, a 1,034' tower topped with a 328' statue of Lenin. Unfortunately for Russia, the lost one of the greatest cathedrals ever built, cathedral of Christ the redeemer.

Her name was Krupskaya. Here she is looking morose.
