Opening of the exhibition "The Leningrad Affair: the City and the People"

New exhibition of The Museum of political history of Russia is dedicated to the ‘Leningrad Affair’ - series of fabricated trials of 1949-1952 against the party, city and district leaders of Leningrad.

‘Leningrad Affair’ became one of the last political processes of the Stalin regime. The consequences of the trials had an influence on the political history of our country in the late 1940s and early 1950s. A heavy blow was dealt not only to the party leadership, but also to many economic leaders, figures of science and culture.
