A man of smaller stature, reaching to the top of his head, had just spoken. He overlooked the crowd once more, put on his coat, and headed out of the building. Less than ten meters from the door, a car with a driver was waiting for him. There were a lot of people all around. One of the women turned to him and asked for help. Several other hands opened the car door so he could get in. Then three shots exploded. The highest party representative of the Russian Soviet Federal Socialist Republic, Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, collapsed to the ground.
