defender of the poor and unfortunate
the Most interesting thing in accordance with their revolutionary beliefs of Vladimir Ilyich never defended the rich, even when he is offered a substantial amount of money. Basically, Lenin acted as a public defender of the poor population. And business it was entrusted with the most complex. For example, once tried Basil Mulenkova accused of blasphemy. Crime in the Russian Empire more than serious, involving actual imprisonment.

Lenin also drew the court’s attention to the fact that the witnesses in the face of the shopkeeper and his daughter – the people concerned, as podadimth owes them money. Stating that the day of the crime Malenkov was sober, they want to discuss it. At the same time, Lenin found witnesses that confirmed that Malenkov was drunk, and all of his behavior – not more than unrestrained emotions. On top Lenin added that the defendant on Sundays sang in the Church choir and could not knowingly offend God.

Lenin took the trouble and interviewed a large number of witnesses who saw the circumstances under which the theft took place. As a result, he found that there was no robbery at all. Police Komorowski and Mashtakov, dressed in civilian clothes, called us peasants in the tavern and had a drink. During the feast provocateurs suggested that they steal a horse and bring her to a secluded place for sale by him. Tishkin and Zorin agreed. However, when they brought the horse to the rendezvous, instigators showed them his police identification and arrested the would-be thieves. In the protection of V. I. Lenin made an emotional speech denouncing unscrupulous police, who for the sake of their service benefits have pushed for the crime of poor, hungry peasants. The main question that Lenin asked the court why the police, knowing about the crime, not stopped it?
However, the crime was committed, and demanded punishment. The court sided with the lawyer and made Maccimolino possible lenient sentence. Tishkina given 3.5 years in prison, and Zorin is just 9 months. Typically, defendants in similar cases were sentenced to several times larger. But unfair policemen were dismissed from service.
